Jerusalem, Purim and terror... once again
This Ongoing War..
06 March '15..
Without wishing to make a tense situation more so, Purim - which Jerusalem uniquely celebrates today (Friday) a day after the rest of the world - is too frequently associated with acts of terror. (Last year, for instance.) There appears to have been one in the past hour (it's now 10:00 am Friday). Ambulance sirens are being heard here in northern Jerusalem as we write.
Five people, according to a very partial report via Walla!, have been injured in a running-down attack a very short time ago, in which a car struck them on Jerusalem's Shmon Hatzadik Street, near the Jerusalem Light Rail station on Route 1. A different report (Hebrew) says there is a stabbing involved as well, and two female police officers are injured.
