from RT:

A truck rammed into pedestrians in Jerusalem, killing four people and injuring over a dozen, Israeli media reported. The driver of the truck was shot in response to an apparent attack targeting Israeli soldiers.

“It is a terrorist attack, a ramming attack,” a police spokeswoman said on Israel Radio.

Police said three men and one woman, all in their 20s, were killed. It added that the truck driver apparently targeted a group of Israeli soldiers who had just gotten off a bus. The driver was killed in the aftermath.

The ambulance service reportedly took 15 people injured in the incident to the hospital, some of whom were seriously injured.

The incident happened on a popular promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel Radio said.

An eyewitness to the incident told the radio station that the truck ploughed into a group of soldiers, and that they fired on the driver, who reversed direction and ran over them again.
