Jerusalem: Two Israelis killed in car-ramming attack

Two Israelis – a 6-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man – have been killed in a car-ramming attack at a bus stop in occupied East Jerusalem, officials say.

The attack happened at Ramot Junction. Police say the driver, a 31-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem, was “neutralised on the spot”. Five people were hurt, medics said.

It comes amid a particularly bloody period between Israelis and Palestinians, with a mounting toll from Palestinian attacks and Israeli raids.

A volunteer medic with an ambulance service told Israel’s Army Radio: “Everyone was lying out, thrown about, in terrible condition.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had “decided to take immediate action to seal and demolish the home of the terrorist”, his office said.

Friday’s attack is the latest in a spate of deadly incidents over the past couple of weeks that have ratcheted tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.
