Another Bulldozer Attack in Jerusalem: 12 Wounded

For the second time in three weeks, an Arab commandeered a bulldozer
to commit a terrorist attack in Jerusalem. He wounded several people
before being shot and killed.

The terrorist began his attempt to murder Jews on King David St.
near the Yemin Moshe neighborhood. He took a tractor from a
construction site, and began plowing into vehicles along the street,
hitting at least three cars - one of which he completely overturned -
and a bus. One driver was able to escape from his car even though the
tractor plowed it into a bus stop. When the terrorist reached the
intersection of Keren HaYesod St., a citizen and Border Guard policeman
shot and killed him. The entire incident was over very quickly,
eyewitnesses said.

Less than three weeks ago, an Arab from eastern Jerusalem killed
three people in a similar attack before he was himself killed by a
heroic yeshiva student/soldier. The tractor used in today's attack was
smaller than the one used in the previous one.
Of the 12 injured, one is reported in moderate condition -
apparently with an amputated leg - and the others have light injuries
or are suffering from trauma. Among them are a woman and her
nine-month-old baby son.
Gag-Order on Terrorist's Name
The dead tractor
terrorist was an Israeli citizen, living in Um Tuba, a south-eastern
Jerusalem Arab neighborhood not far from Sur Baher. His name was
publicized over the radio, and minutes later, a gag order prohibiting
it from being disseminated was publicized - apparently because of his
family connections with a an orange-bearded Hamas legislator who has
been jailed for involvement in terrorism.

Moshe Feiglin, leader of the Likud's Manhigut Yehudit faction, was
an eyewitness to the attack. He told Voice of Radio that his first
impression of the attack was the tractor-shovel attempting to drop down
upon a passerby. "At first I thought it was some kind of accident, but
very quickly we realized that it was an attack. Thank G-d, it ended
very quickly, because of the alertness of passersby who shot him - I
saw a man I know from the southern Judea community of Susia, but he was
the first one to shoot the terrorist, and then the Border Guard
policeman came and finished the story."

The man who first shot the terrorist was later announced to be Yaki Asael, 56, father of eight, from Susia.

"We have long called for a policy of not hiring Arabs in
construction," said Shifra Hoffman of Victims of Arab Terror. "We hold
the government guilty of this attack for not implementing this policy."


Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ. (Philemon 1:3)
