Here’s more from INN:
Medics at the scene told Arutz Sheva that the incident does, indeed, look like a terror attack.
“This is a terrorist who ran over pedestrians with his car at the light rail stop,” Hezi Roth, a medic for Hatzalah who was at the scene, told reports shortly after the attack.
“Shots were fired at the offending vehicle,” he continued. “The terrorist is injured, but conscious at this point in time.”
The Arab driver has now been confirmed (7:15 pm IST) to have been resident of the Shiloach/Silwan neighborhood and a member of Hamas.
One witness stated to the daily that the attack was “horrific” and that “people were screaming.”
The area has been closed to traffic until further notice. Magen David Adom (MDA) medics, Hatzalah crews, and police have swamped the area.
The attack surfaces just hours after Jerusalem Police District Commander Moshe Edri announced a “comprehensive plan” for a new task force to battle the cycle of ongoing violence in Jerusalem, which has been named the “silent intifada.”
