At least 10 people were wounded in a terror bombing attack on Monday, targeting Egged bus line 12 on Derekh Hevron in the southeast of Jerusalem.
Large Magen David Adom (MDA) and police forces are en route to the site. According to reports up to 15 people were wounded in the attack, at least two of them seriously. Exact figures remain unclear.
Jerusalem district police confirmed that the 12 line bus was targeted, apparently by an explosive or suicide bomber who detonated inside the bus.
According to witnesses a large explosion rocked the bus and then it was left burning due to the blast.
Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld reported on Twitter: “Police units respond to possible explosion on bus in Jerusalem. Emergency units on scene.”
