A Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed and rammed his car into three Israelis on Yirmiyahu st. in the Romema neighborhood of Jerusalem Sunday night, leaving three people lightly injured.

ZAKA stated that the terrorist initially tried to run over a Jewish child, then rammed his car into a pedestrian. When that failed to kill him, the terrorist left his vehicle and began stabbing pedestrians, including one policeman.

"The terrorist had knocked on the window [of the police car - ed.], the cop must have opened it, and then he just stabbed him," Avi Yafeh, a bystander, told Walla! News

An IDF soldier spotted the attack from a Jerusalem city bus and began chasing after the terrorist, eventually eliminating him at the scene. Israel Police have so far identified the terrorist as a 21 year-old from the Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina.

Magen David Adom (MDA) medics treated the injured at the scene and transferred them to Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center for treatment.

"At 7:38 pm, MDA's Jerusalem office received a report of a man who was stabbed at Yirmiyahu 60 in Jerusalem," MDA stated shortly after the attack. "Medics provided medical care at the scene and transferred to Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center a 65 year-old man who was conscious and suffering from a stab wound in his limbs and a young man in his twenties who was injured by the vehicle in the attack." 

A third person was treated for shock.
