Jerusalem: Three Israeli Dead In Attack On Bus


Israeli police have said that three Israelis have been killed and more than 20 injured in shooting and stabbing attacks in Jerusalem and central Israel.

The Israeli Ambulance Service said that two were killed when two assailants, who were identified as Arabs, shot and stabbed passengers on a bus in Jerusalem before being shot by police.
Another Israeli died after being run down and stabbed elsewhere in the city.
Others were also injured in another attack in Jerusalem and two in Raanana.
Near-daily stabbings by Palestinians have left Israelis dead and wounded over the past fortnight.
Several attackers and at least 17 other Palestinians have been killed in the upsurge of violence.
Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, convened an emergency session of the security cabinet to discuss how to prevent further attacks.
Officials said that Public Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, was considering whether to seal off Arab areas in East Jerusalem from the rest of the city and ease gun-control regulations.
The militant Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which dominates the Gaza Strip, praised the “heroic operations in Jerusalem and greets the heroes who carried them out”.
