The driver who plowed a truck into a group of soldiers in Jerusalem, killing four people and injuring at least 10, may have been an ISIS sympathizer, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Three of the victims were women and all were in their 20s, a police official said. One report suggested 15 were injured.Israel’s law enforcers said that the truck driver, a resident of East Jerusalem, was shot dead.An image posted on social media showed a white lorry with several bullet holes through its windscreen.The deadliest Palestinian attack in Jerusalem in months was all caught on security camera footage, which shows how the driver quickly went into reverse after ramming into the group of soldiers in what appears to be an attempt to strike more people.The mayhem occurred when the truck appeared to veer off course and barreled into the soldiers, who had just gotten off a bus, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said. After smashing through the crowd at a high speed, the vehicle quickly backs up, apparently to run over more people. “That was really clear”.
