The Jerusalem district police commander, Deputy Commisioner Yoram Halevy, confirmed Monday evening that the explosion on a city bus several hours earlier was a terrorist attack. The blast on the bus that had stopped on Moshe Baram street also hit another bus that was next to it at the time.
Halevy said “a large wave of attacks is ahead of us”, adding that there are initial reports that terrorist organizations have taken responsibility for the bombing. Emergency services evacuated 20 people from the scene of the attack, with two seriously wounded, seven moderately wounded and the rest traumatized or suffering minor injuries.
