This Ongoing War..
15 October '15..
Ordinary Israeli commuters arriving back home in Jerusalem or leaving work confronted every Israeli's nightmare in yesterday's (Wednesday's) evening peak hour rush: chaos, fear and armed soldiers pursuing a man with death-to-the-Jews on his mind.
This video below (via Israel National News) from Jerusalem's always-bustling Central Bus Station captures what thousands saw with their own eyes just a few hours ago.
Ahmed Fathi Abu Sha’aban, 26, said to be a resident of Ras al-Amud, a neighbourhood of East Jerusalem, arrived at the busy transit hub armed with a knife. He's no stranger to acts of terror against Israelis - Times of Israel says he was released recently from Israeli prison where he served three years on terror charges.
Being a man's man, this thug spotted a middle-aged Israeli woman on Jaffa Street, just outside the bus station, and attacked her viciously. She has what are formally described as moderate injuries to her upper body - the details will probably come later - was rushed to Jerusalem's Shaarei Zedek Medical Center for emergency treatment. Ynet's report suggests the injured and traumatized woman ran for shelter into one of the buses lined up and with their doors wide open on Jaffa Road. The attacker, whom it names as Ahmad Shaaban, tried to follow her on board but the bus driver managed to keep him away by shutting the door. Soon after, Israeli security forces arrived, and took permanent care of the man with the knife.
