Jerusalem: Two Killed, Many Wounded in Multiple Attacks

Two people have been killed and as many as 17 others injured – some of them seriously – in two near-simultaneous terrorist attacks in Jerusalem.

In the first incident, a 60-year-old man was killed and 15 others wounded, eightseriously, in a shooting attack on a Number 78 bus traveling along Gallows Street in Armon Hanatziv.

Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah paramedics at the scene described chaos and multiple severe casualties.

The attack involved two terrorists, one of whom was shot dead by police. The second terrorist was shot and wounded, and has been taken into custody.

Minutes after, a car and knife attack took place on Malchei Yisrael street.

The terrorist in that attack reportedly plowed his car into a bus stop and then emerged brandishing a knife, stabbing several passersby.

One person was killed in that attack, and another person was wounded. Paramedics treated the injured victim at the scene before transporting him to hospital in light condition.

The terrorist was reportedly injured and is in police custody.

He has been identified as Jerusalem resident and Bezeq telephone company employee Alaa Abu Jamal. Reports suggest he carried out the attack using his company car.

Following the attacks, police have closed off all roads into Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has called an emergency security cabinet meeting.
