Jerusalem: Bulldozer Used In Deadly Terror Attack

RELATED: UN REACTION TO MID EAST VIOLENCE

Terrorist attack on Jaffa Road, Jerusalem

Three people were killed and over 50 wounded in a terror attack in Jerusalem shortly before noon.

Driving a bulldozer on Jaffa Road between the Central Bus Station and the Mahane Yehuda market, a terrorist deliberately plowed into cars and pedestrians as well as two public buses (Egged buses 13 and 60) carrying some 50 passengers, overturning one of them. Police shot and killed the terrorist.

The terrorist has been identified as a Palestinian from eastern Jerusalem, who had taken the heavy bulldozer from the construction company that employed him. He drove the large earthmover from the nearby construction site of Jerusalem's light rail project for about 500 meters, crushing oncoming traffic on Jaffa Road before being killed.

The victims - all of Jerusalem:

- Elizabeth (Lili) Goren-Friedman, 54
- Jean Reloy, 68
- Batsheva Unterman, 33
