Masked Arabs in Silwan are burning tires, blocking roads and attacking border polices. Clashes are taking place at this time. Additional troops are being deployed.

19:20 IL: Hamas is claiming responsibility for the vehicular attack at the Ammunition Hill Jerusalem light rail station.

18:38 IL: Police are reporting that a private vehicle traveling from French Hill towards police headquarters struck eight pedestrians standing at the bus stop. Before coming to a halt the vehicle slammed into a pole and was halted. The driver tried fleeing and a policeman fired at him, hitting him. All the victims and the driver were taken to local hospitals.

Channel 2 News correspondent Moshe Nussbaum at the train station where the incident confirms the vehicle was heading southbound when it struck all pedestrians at the train station. Nussbaum says the number of victims is nine, including a baby girl. At least one of the injured is in serious condition. While the official word has not yet been given, all signs point to a terrorist attack. The identity of the wounded terrorist has not been released at this time.

Police have sealed down the capital and checkpoints have been set up and drivers are being questioned and vehicles inspected. Police feel it is likely the terrorist has received assistance.

18:20 IL: Magen David Adom and Ichud (United) Hatzalah received reports of pedestrians run over at the light rail station located at Ammunition Hill. The callers reported it appears to have been intentional, leading them to believe it was an Arab terrorist attack however this has not yet been confirmed. Conflicting reports indicate the driver/terrorist was shot and wounded and is in custody. More information to follow as the story continues to unfold.

18:09 IL: According to preliminary information, all signs report to a terrorist attack involving the Jerusalem light rail. Two persons have been seriously injured and a baby girl sustained less serious injuries near the Ammunition Hill area of the capital.

  1. I believe the solution is to “kill all arabs”. That is not the Jewish way of looking at things. We must feel the pain of the Jewish mother and her children, and ask what was the message Hashem was sending us.

    When the three kedoshim were murdered, we dovened and united. Maybe that led to the discovery of the Hamas Murder Tunnels, and the Rosh Hashana massacre.

    Everything is hidden..hester panim

  2. Where is Susan Rice?! Still searching YouTube to see if any “insulting” video was put out by some Israeli?! Where is the Dufuss, Lurch Kerry?! Holding secret talks with Abbas as to how to stick it to the Israeli’s?! Where are our Organizations? Still haven’t gotten back from their “Apology tour”?! I’m sure Barry & Mr. Bunkhead are preparing a statement calling on all Israeli’s to prevent any “backlash” against the poor “innocent” persecuted Muslims.

  3. Ironic – Israeli doctors are working frantically to save the terrorists life, the convicted terrorist who has been released from Israeli prison twice as a “kind gesture” from Netanyahu has just undergone emergency surgery paid for by the Israeli government with the free health care that all Israeli Arabs enjoy.

  6. If they don’t shoot to kill these rats, they’ll continue to make our lives miserable. As long as the Israelis are tiptoeing around the arab rats, they’ll continue to do this. They must shoot to kill!! So they’ll shoot back? So they will!, We’re in a war and it’s about time the Israelis do what should be done!
