Shoting attack in northern Jerusalem

A shooting attack took place on Wednesday morning at Ramot Junction, in the northwest neighborhood of Ramot in Jerusalem.

In the drive-by attack shots were fired from a car on an Egged bus at the junction. Fortunately MDA reports that none were wounded in the attack.

Security forces are currently conducting a chase to try and hunt down the shooter.

Roadblocks have been established at the junction as part of efforts to secure the region.

The attack follows a bloody Tuesday, in which no fewer than three high level attacks were conducted, with police estimating US Vice President Joe Biden's visit which began the same day was likely a catalyst.

The attacks Tuesday occurred in Petah Tikva, where a man was moderately wounded but managed to fight back and kill his Arab attacker, Jerusalem, where two officers were shot and seriously wounded, and Yafo, where a mass casualty stabbing took place.

In Yafo an American tourist, Taylor Allen Force, was murdered and 12 others were wounded by an Arab terrorist who went on a stabbing rampage. The US issued a condemnation of the attack.
