Palestinian Shot Dead After Jerusalem Tractor Attack
There was another tractor attack in Jerusalem today.
The driver was shot dead after smashing and flipping a police car.
A tractor plowed into a police squad car on Menachem Begin Boulevard in Jerusalem on Thursday. The driver was apparently also trying to hit a nearby bus, but missed.
Two police officers were in the car when it was hit and both sustained mild injuries. Other police officers patrolling nearby shot the terrorist.
Magen David Adom emergency services were immediately dispatched to the area. The paramedics treated both the injured officers and the tractor driver, who reportedly sustained severe injuries.
One of the police officers and the terrorist were taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem. The other police officer was taken to the capital’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. The tractor driver was later pronounced dead.
