    Police in Jerusalem have shot a suspected terrorist who rammed a lorry into a group of pedestrians, injuring at least 15, reports say.

    The attack occurred on a popular promenade overlooking the walled Old City of Jerusalem.

    "It is a terrorist attack, a ramming attack," a police spokeswoman said on Israel Radio, which reported that bodies were "strewn on the street".

    The attack comes weeks after 12 people died in a lorry attack in Berlin.

    Truck attack was aimed at a group of off duty soldiers

    Moshe Aharon, the driver of the bus which the victims were riding on tells Israel Hayom that “a group of [people] was standing with their bags near the bus. I had just let them off. The truck drove into the group of [people], ran over them and kept going. The [people] shot at the driver. He reversed and ran over them again.”

    4 dead (all soldiers) and more than 13 wounded, including 3 in serious condition.

    Palestinian media identify the Jerusalem truck driver attacker as Fadi al-Qanbar from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal Mukabar. The perpetrator is an Arab-Israeli (not yet confirmed).

    Liberals can be so ****ing stupid some times... and that's the understatement of 2016, because most of them are fruitcakes.

    A group of soldiers involved in the occupation of Palestinians were killed.

    Not sure there's anything to cry about, or why it's even newsworthy.
    So terrorism is only a bad thing and newsworthy if it isn't against a group you don't like?

    'legitimate peacekeepers' keeping more than a million people in an open air prison.

    I'm not surprised the Palestinians hate their guts.

    I'm not surprised the Palestinians hate their guts, and in this instance ran over their guts.
    the Israelis have bent over backwards to help the people of Gaza, Judaea and Samaria, but all of their efforts have been hurled back in their faces.

    An open-air prison? Please elaborate. Are you telling me palistinians can't go places they want to go and are forced to stay put? Eg if a palistinian wants to move somewhere, they are barred from doing so? Seems unlikely since they are all over the globe as shown by their incessant protests.

    Instead of acting shocked, you should go read about the conditions in Gaza.

    And that's the fault of the Jews? Do you ask other people to wipe your ass for you?
