More Muslim Terror In Israel - 4 Dead In Truck Attack

Was it ISIS or Hamas or Islamic Jihad or just a run-of-the-mill so-called palestinian?  Doesn't matter.  Make the vengeance swift, complete and shocking.

The story comes from Haaretz.

Jerusalem Attack: 4 Soldiers Killed After Truck Rams Into Pedestrians

Four soldiers were killed and 13 people were wounded in Jerusalem on Sunday when a truck rammed into pedestrians near the Armon Hanatziv Promenade.

Police chief Roni Alsheich described the truck-ramming as a terror attack. The assailant, a resident of East Jerusalem, was shot and killed, the police chief said, adding that there was no advance warning for the attack.

Speaking at the scene of the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "We know the identity of the attacker. All signs point to the attacker being a supporter of the Islamic State."

Referring to similar vehicle ramming attacks in Europe, in Nice in July and in Germany last month, Netanyahu minister said there may be a link between them and Sunday's attack, "from France and Berlin and now Jerusalem."

The prime minister said a number of steps were being taken that he would not specify in detail "to ensure that such incidents are not repeated."

According to the police, the truck veered from its course along the promenade and rammed into a group of soldiers getting off a bus.

"You don't need more than two to three seconds to find a terrorist target," the police commissioner said. "The soldiers at the scene reacted immediately and killed the attacker."
