Terror attack with BMW leaves 15 injured

A Muslim from east Jerusalem ran into a crowd with a BMW:
An Arab resident of east Jerusalem rammed his vehicle into a group of soldiers at a central Jerusalem thoroughfare late Monday night, wounding fifteen people, before being shot dead by an off-duty IDF officer, police and rescue officials said.

It was the third such attack in the city in as many months.

The attack took place at the city's Kikar Tzahal near Jaffa Gate. Two of the casualties were in moderate condition, the rest were lightly hurt.

The area in question is adjacent to east Jerusalem and the Old City of Jerusalem.

The assailant, who was driving a BMW, crashed into a group of off-duty soldiers on the sidewalk, where his car came to a grinding halt.

Jerusalem police chief Aharon Franco said that the attacker was shot dead "within seconds" by an off-duty army man who was touring the city with his unit.

He added that there was no intelligence information ahead of the attack, but noted that Jerusalem is under heavy security alert during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The city's police chief said that the lone attacker was an Arab resident of east Jerusalem.

The pedestrians wounded in the attack were rushed to Jerusalem's Hadassah-University Hospital at Ein Kerem, and the city's Sha'are Tzedek Hospital.

The attack comes after two back-to-back bulldozer attacks in Jerusalem in July which left three Israelis dead and dozens wounded.


Defense Minister Ehud Barak called to expedite legal processes so that security forces could demolish homes of terrorists in order to deter future attacks.
Yes, demolishing the homes of these filthy slugs is something that needs to be done in order to send a message about what's going to happen if they commit crimes.

And by the way, notice that the filth's car was a German-made BMW, which is a very expensive vehicle. Don't think then that people like that are really "poor".
