#AceBreakingNews – A gunman has opened fire at a bus near Jerusalem’s Old City, wounding eight Israelis in a suspected Palestinian attack that comes a week after violence flared between Israel and militants in Gaza, according to police and medics.
Two of the victims were in a serious condition, including a pregnant woman with abdominal injuries and a man with gunshot wounds to the head and neck, according to Israeli hospitals treating them.
The shootings occurred as the bus waited in a parking lot near the Western Wall, which is considered the holiest site where Jews go to pray.
Israeli police said forces were dispatched to the scene to investigate and security forces also pushed into the nearby Palestinian neighbourhood of Silwan while pursuing the suspected attacker.
The attack in Jerusalem followed a tense week between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
“Jerusalem is our capital city and a tourist centre for all religious,” Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement, adding that Israeli security forces would “restore calm”.
Shooting follows ceasefire, arrest raids
Last weekend, Israeli aircraft unleashed an offensive in the Gaza Strip targeting the militant group Islamic Jihad and setting off three days of fierce cross-border fighting.
Islamic Jihad fired hundreds of rockets after the air strikes, which killed two of its commanders and other militants.
Israel said the attack was meant to thwart threats from the group to respond to the arrest of one of its officials in the occupied West Bank.
In the fighting — which ended with an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire — 49 Palestinians, including 17 children and 14 militants, were killed and several hundred more were injured.
No Israelis were killed nor seriously injured.
The Islamic militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, stayed on the sidelines.
A day after the ceasefire halted the worst round of Gaza fighting in more than a year, Israeli troops killed three Palestinian militants and wounded dozens in a shootout that erupted during an arrest raid in the West Bank city of Nablus.
