 Terrorist attack in Jerusalem: unknown person shot bus

At night in Jerusalem, an unidentified person opened fire on a bus full of people. The incident happened in a parking lot near the Wailing Wall and the tomb of King David.

“It was a bus with parishioners that left the Wailing Wall and headed towards the city. According to a passer-by, the terrorist began randomly shooting in the direction of the bus,",– said a paramedic who arrived at the scene.

8 victims are reported. Among them are four tourists, members of the same family, who arrived in Israel from the United States last Wednesday.
The father was hospitalized in serious condition.

The shooter fled the scene. The injured were taken to the Shaare Zedek hospital. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called the attack a courageous act of resistance, calling it “a natural response to the occupation and the settlers' daily crimes against [Palestinians]”
