Attack in Israel’s Capital
Earlier today, a Palestinian drove his car off the road into a group of people who had just gotten off Jerusalem’s light rail at the Ammunition Hill stop, killing a three month old baby and injuring seven others.
“A private car which arrived from the direction of the French Hill junction hit a number of pedestrians who were on the pavement and injured nine of them,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.
“Initial indications suggest this is a hit-and-run terror attack,” Samri said.
The baby died at the nearby Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus a few hours after the incident. A spokesperson for Israeli rescue service Magen David Adom said a 60-year-old woman and seven other people, including the baby’s father, were also lightly and moderately wounded in the attack. …
The suspect , Abdelrahman al-Shaludi, previously served time in jail and has been identified by Israeli government spokesman Ofir Gendelman as a member of Hamas.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for partnering with Hamas and inciting violence.
In the telephone consultation, the Prime Minister was updated on the details of vehicular terrorist attack in Jerusalem; he ordered that security forces in Jerusalem be reinforced. “This is how Abu Mazen’s partners in government act, the same Abu Mazen who – only a few days ago – incited toward a terrorist attack in Jerusalem,” the Prime Minister said.
The slain baby’s grandfather, Shimon Halperin, told reporters Wednesday evening that her parents had waited many years for a child, and they were completely shaken. “The doctors did everything they could and I want to thank them,” he said.
In a blatant display of media bias, CAMERA reports that AP initially headlined the article “Israeli Police Shoot Man in east Jerusalem.”
Channel 2 confirms that the perpetrator of today's attack in Jerusalem is the nephew of Hamas's late chief bombmaker, Mohiyedine Sharif.

those who blamed Arab boy's murder in Jerusalem on Bibi's call for revenge against terrorists-will they now blame Abbas "cattle" incitement?
