Israel: truck 'rams soldiers' in Jerusalem, casualties reported

At least four Israeli soldiers have been killed, and thirteen wounded when a truck ploughed into a crowd in Jerusalem.

Israeli police say it was a ‘deliberate attack’ on a popular promenade overlooking the walled Old City of Jerusalem.

A bus driver who witnessed the events said on Israel Radio that the truck hit a group of soldiers, then the driver of the vehicle was fired upon. He then reversed over the soldiers. Local TV stations said the driver was killed, and footage showed bullet holes in the truck’s windscreen.

Israel Radio reported that the driver of the truck was Palestinian. However, his identity has not yet been confirmed.
