Meanwhile, another motorist slammed into pedestrians near the Jerusalem light rail, killing one Border Police officer and wounding 14 others.
On October 22, a three-month-old baby was killed and seven people were injured when a car deliberately crashed into a light rail station in Jerusalem as they were getting off a train. The driver, who was identified as Ibrahim al-Akri, was shot by law enforcement officers as he got out of his car and began to attack civilians in the vicinity with an iron rod.
Tensions have been rising in Jerusalem after Israel blocked access to the Temple Mount, which is Judaism’s holiest site and allegedly Islam’s third holiest site.
