Palestinian plows truck into Israeli soldiers, four dead

Monday, January 09, 2017

Jerusalem: A Palestinian rammed a truck into a group of Israeli soldiers visiting a popular tourist spot in Jerusalem today, killing four and wounding at least 15 people, authorities said.

The driver was also killed in what Israeli police were calling an attack at the location overlooking holy sites in the Old City such as the Dome of the Rock and providing one of the most spectacular views of Jerusalem. Chaos broke out at the scene when the truck ploughed through the crowd, with hundreds of soldiers having arrived there as part of a tour for troops about the history of Jerusalem.

"A lone terrorist drove his truck into a group of soldiers standing on the side of the road," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told reporters at the scene.
"They got off the bus, and as they were getting off the bus and getting organised, he took advantage."

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the driver was killed by Israeli forces, without specifying whether it was soldiers or police.

Multiple bullet holes could be seen in the windshield of the truck.

Police only confirmed four people were dead, but a medic at the scene said they were soldiers.

Video said to be of the incident being shared online showed a flatbed truck with a crane in the rear drive through a group of soldiers standing next to a bus.

The driver then pulls off to the side and tries to reverse back towards where the soldiers were hit.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Keep away from any new investments today as your judgment could be biased. Personal relationships are disappointing. Don't let it bother you. You can't please everybody. Criticism will irritate you. At times you can feel quite alone and forsaken as you may be feeling neglected. You've had been unnecessarily worried about the home situation, which was not of your making nor are you responsible for it. Chill and let others sort out their problems.
