There are conflicting reports as to who shot back at the truck driver, who has been neutralized and killed.

A bus driver waiting nearby saw the truck run over the soldiers, and then the soldiers opened fire, and the driver ran over them again.

Some reports indicate that the terrorist was shot and killed by the soldier’s civilian tour guide, other reports say the soldiers shot him.

Emergency medical forces declared this a mass casualty incident.

Yakov Kaminetzki, a volunteer with United Hatzalah’s EMS ambucycle unit reported from the scene of the event: “When I arrived at the scene I saw a number of pedestrians who were run down by a large truck near the Armon Hanatziv Promenade.  Some of the pedestrians were unconscious and trapped underneath the vehicle. I requested that the dispatch and command center send additional assistance including fire and rescue services as well as additional EMS responders due to the large number of injured persons. Near the vehicle were a number of other pedestrians who had sustained various degrees of injuries some of whom were in serious and moderate condition.”

The Hamas terror group has praised the attack.

  1. Not the first, not the last time this type of attack has occurred. The use of tractors and trucks was used last year. Nuance here is Israeli license plates. IDF and police need a protocol to teach all soldiers on how to quickly and effectively neutralize the situation. Perhaps shooting the tires in such a large vehicle doesn’t work or slow down the vehicle due to inertia if the vehicle size and mass. Soldiers need to be on alert as this will escalate. They maybe afraid to act in light of recent verdict by the court.

  2. Soldiers ran and a civilian shot the terrorist: It is the result of the conviction of Elor Azarya who killed a terrorist and was sent to prison: But ENOUGH!

    Again and again they strike again!

    ISRAEL’S MANIFESTO: A DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES to the destructive vehicle rammings, arsons, forest fires, knifings, missiles, abductions and suicide attacks.

    The so called “RELIGION OF PEACE” COMMITS MORE COLLECTIVE ARSON, MURDER AND DESTRUCTION IN ISRAEL.

    To just demolish a property is not enough: A non negotiable method and solution to accomplish “real peace” with Israel and the so called “Palestinian” Arab Muslims:

    10 square kilometers of annexation from land the killers or arsonists seek, for every Israeli abducted, killed, homes burnt and forest fires set… including the death penalty and/or exile.

    2 square kilometers will be removed from the negotiating table and annexed from Gaza and/or Judea/Samaria for every missile sent into Israel, knifing attacks, forest fires set, houses burnt, underground tunnels discovered or illegals found.

    Thus, this is a NEW method and solution in solving the madness with an enemy who cares less about life and more about conquering and destroying land!

    To the world: No more apologies for living, No more apologies for surviving and No more apologies for forcing your deceptive peace… No more apologies… ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    THE SOLUTION TO THESE OCCUPIERS, THEIR MADNESS, CRUELTY AND EVILNESS WILL END!
