Truck attack by jihadist in Jerusalem murders 4 soldiers

In another attack similar to those that occurred in France and Germany, a jihadist ploughed a truck into a crowd in the Armon Natsiv neighborhood, murdering 4 soldiers before being shot down himself:
Four soldiers were killed, and 17 wounded, after a flatbed truck driven by an Arab terrorist rammed into a group of conscripts adjacent to the Armon Hanatziv promenade in southern Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon.

Four soldiers, Lt. Yael Yekutiel, 20-years-old from Givatayim, Shir Hajaj, 20 -years-old from Ma'aleh Adumim, Shira Tzur, 20-years-old from Haifa and Erez Averbuch, 20-years-old form Alon Shvut, were declared dead at the scene, which was called a mass-casualty incident.

According to the IDF spokesman, an additional two cadets were seriously wounded, and 15 other officers and cadets sustained less severe wounds. Some 300 soldiers were in the area at the time of the attack, the IDF said.

Yossi Fraenkel, deputy commander of ZAKA in Jerusalem, said 12 of the wounded are in light condition, four are in either serious or moderate condition, and one is in critical condition.

All the victims were evacuated to different area hospitals.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who visited the scene with Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman shortly after the 1:30 p.m. attack, said the terrorist was identified as Fadi al-Qanbar, from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, long a hotbed of incitement and violence.

“We know the identity of the attacker, and according to all the signs, he is a supporter of Islamic State,” Netanyahu said, without elaborating.

He added that there may be a connection between this attack and similar attacks recently in France and Berlin.

“We are fighting this plague, and will defeat it,” Netanyahu said, noting that Jabel Mukaber has been cordoned off, and that “we are taking other actions that I will not detail here.”

“We will overcome this terror, just as we overcame other attacks,” he said. “There are a number of actions that we will not specify at this time, which we will have to take to ensure that incidents such as these do not recur.”

Lieberman said the attack was clearly the result of incitement against Jews living in Israel.
More precisely, it's the result of the UN's own ill-laden activities. They led to this in their own way, and now they owe apologies they'll never give.
