Four people have been killed after a terrorist rammed a truck into a group of young people departing from a bus near the Armon Hanatziv promenade in Jerusalem. Emergency services have confirmed that three women and one man in their twenties have been killed, another fifteen have been injured with one in a serious condition.
Police have confirmed that the attacker was shot dead at the scene.
A spokesman for Hamas has praised the attacks and vowed to continue and escalate what he called the resistance, according to the Associated Press.
This follows two other serious attacks over the past week including the attack at Fort Lauderdale Airport and Istanbul Nightclub, in what has been a shockingly bloody start to the new year.
