Baby Among 11 Hurt in Jerusalem Ramming Attack

Terrorist was also carrying an axe, intending to hack and stab additional victims, but was shot dead

By |

A Palestinian Arab terrorist on Monday rammed his car into a crowd of people standing at a bus stop near the entrance to Jerusalem, wounding 11, including an 18-month-old child.

The attack occurred near the “chords” bridge adjacent to Jerusalem’s Central Bus Station around mid-afternoon.

Nine of the victims were said to have suffered light injuries, while two, including the baby, were moderately wounded.

Two bystanders, a soldier and an armed civilian, witnessed the attack and quickly shot the terrorist dead before he could exit the vehicle and continue his attack.

Police found an axe in the vehicle, indicating that the assailant, a 21-year-old man from the Jerusalem suburb of Beit Hanina, did indeed intend to hack and stab additional victims following the ramming.
