14 people have been injured in a car-ramming attack in central Jerusalem, close to the capital's iconic Chords Bridge.
Six of the wounded victims were evacuated to Shaarei Tzedek hospital, two of them in moderate condition - a 65-year-old woman and a one-and-a-half-year-old toddler. The remainder were hospitalized with light injuries.
Five others were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital with light injuries.
The terrorist was eliminated at the scene.
Witnesses say the attack began when an Arab driver arrived at Herzl Boulevard, towards the entrance to the capital, in a private vehicle just before 3 p.m.
Without warning, the terrorist then mounted the sidewalk and plowed his car into a group of civilians waiting at a bus stop.
He was apparently shot dead after emerging from his car - which crashed into a fire hydrant - armed with an ax, and attempted to attack onlookers.
Video shows aftermath of attack:
CEO of the United Hatzalah emergency service Moshe Teitelbaum was at the scene.
"When I arrived at the scene I provided emergency first aid treatment, together with volunteers from United Hatzalah's motorcycle unit, to a child and his mother, and to a number of pedestrians who were wounded by a car.
He described hearing gunshots - presumably from security forces shooting the terrorist.
All the victims were conscious, and none appear to be in life-threatening condition, he added.
