4 Israeli Soldiers Killed, 15 Injured in Jerusalem Attack

24496235-f9e3-4fab-ac19-5167a38154db_cx0_cy0_cw96_w610_r1Israeli police say a truck driven by a Palestinian slammed into a group of Israeli soldiers Sunday in a deliberate attack, killing four of them and injuring another 15, one seriously.

“It’s a terrorist attack, a ramming attack,” a police spokesman said on Israel Radio.

Authorities said the soldiers were getting off a bus at the scenic Armon Hanatziv promenade overlooking the walled Old City of Jerusalem when the truck veered off course and without warning smashed into the group.

Authorities said they shot the attacker to death. Palestinian authorities identified him as a resident of the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal Mukaber, close to where the attack occurred.
