Gateway Pundit Israeli police shot and wounded the driver of a car who rammed a group of pedestrians in Jerusalem Wednesday, injuring nine, in a suspected “terror attack.” Shortly before 6:00 pm (1500 GMT), a car hit pedestrians at the Ammunition Hill tram stop, which lies on the seamline between west and occupied east Jerusalem.
“A private car which arrived from the direction of the French Hill junction hit a number of pedestrians who were on the pavement and injured nine of them,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.
“The driver apparently tried to flee on foot and was shot and wounded by a policeman from the Jerusalem district.” It was not immediately clear how badly he was hurt, nor were there any details on his identity.
“Initial indications suggest this is a hit-and-run terror attack,” Samri said.
