Jerusalem Attack: 4 Soldiers Killed After Truck Rams Into Pedestrians

Four soldiers were killed and 13 people were wounded in Jerusalem on Sunday when a truck rammed into pedestrians near the Armon Hanatziv Promenade.

Police chief Roni Alsheich described the truck-ramming as a terror attack. The assailant, a resident of East Jerusalem, was shot and killed, the police chief said, adding that there was no advance warning for the attack.

Netanyahu says all signs point to assailant, a resident of East Jerusalem who was shot and killed, being an ISIS supporter.

 Speaking at the scene of the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "We know the identity of the attacker.  All signs point to the attacker being a supporter of the Islamic State."

Referring to similar vehicle ramming attacks in Europe, in Nice in July and in Germany last month, Netanyahu minister said there may be a link between them and Sunday's attack, "from France and Berlin and now Jerusalem."

The prime minister said a number of steps were being taken that he would not specify in detail "to ensure that such incidents are not repeated."
