At least four people were killed and 44 were wounded – one seriously, one moderately and 42 lightly – on Wednesday afternoon when a bulldozer driver went on a rampage in downtown Jerusalem.
Police said that the driver plowed his vehicle into two public buses, toppling them over, and slammed into several cars.
A off-duty soldier took the gun from an elite policeman at the scene and shot the terrorist dead. The soldier, Moshe Klessner, 18, is the brother-in-law of IDF officer David Shapira, who killed the terrorist in the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva attack, Channel 2 reported.
Klessner was assisted in neutralizing the attacker by another elite policeman.
Another elite policeman was lightly wounded, apparently by gunfire, indicating that the terrorist was armed.
Police said the incident was definitely a terror attack, emphasizing that the terrorist, Jabr Duwait, a 32-year-old father of two from Jebl Mukaber, was carrying an Israeli identity card. The Mercaz Harav attacker was from the very same east Jerusalem town….
UPDATE: The Jerusalem Post now reports 3 killed, and 57 injured.
