Four young Israeli soldiers were killed and another 15 were wounded on Sunday when a terrorist rammed his truck into them in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv.
The soldiers had just gotten off a bus when the utility vehicle plowed into them.
Bus driver Moshe Aharon recounted the harrowing moments on Army Radio:
“A group of soldiers was standing with their bags near the bus. I had just let them off. The truck drove into the group of soldiers, ran over them and kept going. The soldiers shot at the driver. He reversed and ran over them again.”
Police confirmed that the incident was indeed a terrorist attack, and not a traffic accident, as evidenced by the fact the driver reversed and ran over the bodies several times.
A number of soldiers were trapped under the vehicle and had to be rescued.
The driver of the truck was shot and killed. He will no doubt be honored as a “martyr” by the Palestinian Authority and Israel’s other antagonists.
