Description

A man drove into a group of people waiting for the Jerusalem Light Rail around 6:25pm on Wednesday near Ammunition Hill (Givat HaTachmoshet) in what might be a terrorist attack. Eight people were injured, two seriously, including a baby. People on site are tweeting that the driver was shot by a policeman as he tried to flee. The driver was not killed after being shot. Arab sources identify the driver as Abdul Rachaman from Silwan, he reportedly spent 14 months in prison. Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld, Israel Police Foreign Press Spokesman said that nine people were injured by a vehicle which struck people at the light rail station. The shots people heard were ones fired at the suspected terrorist as he tried to flee the area. It is not 100% clear at whether this was a terror attack or a vehicular accident, though indications seem to be leaning towards terrorism. Initial reports incorrectly indicated that the Light Rail was derailed. That was based on a statement by a train company employee.
