Matthew 24:10,11 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
For the second time in two weeks, a terrorist has driven a car into a crowd of civilians in Jerusalem.
Security sources say that Ibrahim al-Acri, an Arab man with connections to Hamas, drove a car into four people at a light rail station in eastern Jerusalem. He then drove a quarter mile further to strike ten more people before crashing his vehicle.
He leapt from his car with an iron rod to attack people but fled when police arrived. He was shot as he attempted to avoid police.
Rescue workers on the scene say at least one of the victims at Shimon HaTsadik light rail station is dead.
Hamas claimed credit for the attack according to a statement obtained by USA Radio News.
“We call on the people of Jerusalem and the West Bank and all of the Palestinians to carry out more of these activities with full force in order to defend al-Aska,” said the Hamas statement.
