Three Israelis killed as attackers ambush bus in Jerusalem
Oct.13, Jerusalem: At least three Israelis have been killed and dozens injured in shooting and stabbing attacks in Jerusalem and central Israel on Tuesday.
Israeli police said that two were killed when two assailants opened fire and stabbed passengers on a bus in Jerusalem and another died in a vehicle and knife attack elsewhere in the city.
Near-daily stabbings by Palestinians have left dozens of Israelis dead and wounded over the past fortnight. Several attackers and at least 17 other Palestinians have been killed in the upsurge of violence.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will convene an emergency session of the security cabinet on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the surge in violence.
