Jerusalem: Two people died, including children when a car hit people at a bus stop
A car crashes into people at a bus stop in Jerusalem Friday, killing at least two people, including a child, in what Israeli police initially described as a “massive terrorist attack”.
The Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency response team said the child died at the scene. Shaare Zedek Hospital later announced a man in his 20s had died from his injuries following the incident.
Five others were injured, including two other children, one of whom was in critical condition, the MDA said.
Police said the suspect was “neutralized” at the scene.
The incident happened at a bus stop at the intersection of Ramot, an area Israel considers a neighborhood north of Jerusalem.
It is the land Israel captured from Jordan in 1967 and then annexed it, so Palestinians and many international observers consider it a settlement on occupied land.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the sealing and destruction of the home of the attack suspect, his office said in a statement on Friday.
