Seven injured, two seriously, in attack on bus in Jerusalem: police, paramedics

Jerusalem (AFP) –

Seven people were injured, two of them critically, after a shooting attack on a bus in Jerusalem’s Old City, Israeli police and medics said early Sunday.

“Police have been notified of a shooting on a bus … Police have cordoned off the scene and are looking for a suspect who fled,” police said.

The Israeli rescue service Magen David Adom (MDA) called the incident a “terrorist attack in the old city”.

“We were there very quickly. On Ma’ale Hashalom St. we saw a passenger bus parked in the middle of the street, passers-by called us to treat two men in their 30s who were on the bus with gunshot wounds,” MDA said message with.

Bus driver Daniel Kanievsky said the attack happened near King David’s tomb.

“I came from the Western Wall. The bus was full of passengers. I stopped at the station of David’s tomb. At that moment the shooting begins. I see two people falling outside, two bleeding inside. he told reporters at the scene.

Since March, 19 people – mostly Israeli civilians in Israel – have been killed in attacks, mostly by Palestinians. Three Israeli Arab attackers were also killed.

As a result, the Israeli authorities stepped up operations in the occupied West Bank.

More than 50 Palestinians, including militants and civilians, have since been killed in operations and incidents in the West Bank.

Last week, a three-day intense conflict erupted between Israel and Islamic Jihad fighters in the densely populated Palestinian enclave of Gaza.

At least 49 Palestinians, including Islamic Jihad fighters but also children, died in the latest violence, which ended last Sunday after Egypt negotiated a ceasefire.
