Toddler Wounded in Jerusalem Car Ramming Attack


JERUSALEM, Israel -- At least 11 people were wounded, two of them moderately, including a toddler and a 65-year-old woman in a car ramming attack near the entrance of Jerusalem on Monday afternoon. 

Doctors at Jerusalem's Shaare Tzedek Hospital took the baby to surgery in an effort to save his foot.

According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the driver of the white sedan drove into a group of pedestrians near a bus stop. He was shot and killed before he got out of the car.

The assailant, 21, was from the Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina, Rosenfeld told CBN News. 

Police say they suspect the terrorist had plans for a larger attack after finding a large axe in his car.

Since the current round of terror began on September 13, 22 people have been killed and more than 215 wounded in at least 90 stabbing attacks, 33 shooting attacks and 15 vehicular ramming attacks.
