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, eight seriously, 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.
