Terrorist's car after it rammed into a bus stop in Jerusalem Monday.

An Arab terrorist with Israeli citizenship was shot and killed near the Jerusalem Chords Bridge at the entrance to the capital after he rammed his vehicle into people at a bus stop around 3 p.m. (8 a.m. EDT).

Eleven civilians were wounded, including a seriously injured 18-month-old baby girl and a 65-year-old woman who suffered moderate injuries. Nine others were lightly injured.


Doctors entered the operating room at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center and were fighting to save the leg of the baby girl, which was badly wounded in the attack.

An eyewitness said the terrorist, identified as Abed el-Muhsan Hassuna, 21, accelerated his white Mazda sedan and drove it into the bus stop on Herzl Boulevard near the Chords Bridge at the entrance to the city. Hassuna lived in the Beit Hanina neighborhood in northern Jerusalem.

She added that a security guard reacted immediately and eliminated the terrorist within seconds, before he was able to get out of his car. Police found a new axe and a screwdriver in the terrorist’s car, and the quick response by the security guard prevented more casualties.

Following the attack, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat urged city residents to stand firm: “Go on with your daily routine, be vigilant, but do not let the terrorists win.”

Protective posts will soon be added to bus stops in high risk areas, Barkat said, to prevent future ramming attacks.

  1. You're an idiot. Israel has a legal way out, but has refused to consider it since 1967 with no end in sight. They can repatriate these overwhelmingly genocidal sub-vermin back to Jordan & Egypt.
    Screeching genocide when there's an alternative reduces you to being similar to them.

  2. As of with immediate effect any Arab in a car should be arrested and detained, the only mode of transport for these pos pig's should be donkeys…It was good enough for the hursharamoota mohamed it's good for them after 24 hours any Arab driving should be shot and his or her home destroyed no more chances. ..

  3. amazing that this story is not aired on BBC or any other media news or broadcasting stations – I guess if the boot was on the other foot, or even a reprisal to this evil madness, we would all have to wear a hair shirt. – well, Israel, do what you need to do to survive and attempt to overcome this body of schmutz.
