An Israeli was killed and many others were injured in a heroic operation in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Wednesday.
Israeli media reported, citing occupation police and medics, that two explosions at two bus stops near entrances to Al-Quds on Wednesday morning killed one Israeli and left another 22 people injured.
The first explosion occurred close to the main entrance of the occupied city in the so-called area of Givat Shaul, shortly after 7 a.m., peak commuter hour, Times of Israeli reported.
Eighteen Israelis at the bus stop were injured in the blast, including two critically and two seriously, medical officials said.
One of the injured died later at hospital, the Israeli paper added.
A second blast occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m., at the so-called Ramot junction, another entrance to Al-Quds, Times of Israel said, adding that five Israelis were lightly hurt by shrapnel or suffered from anxiety in the second explosion.
Ynet quoted an Israeli medic as saying that the explosion was crazy explosion, adding that there was a damage everywhere there.
Israeli Police on High Alert Israeli media reported that the occupation forces were on high alert, adding that police had closed off the Route 1 highway following the first blast.
The Jerusalem Post cited occupation police as saying that the explosions appeared to have been caused by a bomb placed in a bag near a bus.
The bus was riddled with holes, showing the dispersion of shrapnel, Jpost said, adding that the bombs were detonated remotely and were reportedly packed with nails and bolts.
“Initial police investigation taken by Israeli police saboteurs at both scenes shows that different explosive charges were placed at both scenes. It is suspected that this is a combined terror attack,” the occupation police said in a statement.
Israeli Occupation Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai arrived to the scene of the first explosion where he was briefed on the attack and held a situational assessment with Al-Quds District Commander Doron Turgeman.
Speaking at the scene, Shabtai said that every bus in Al-Quds will be searched by police officers and all of the bomb-sniffing dogs in the Zionist etity will be activated to search for explosive devices.
He added that police are investigating whether or not there was more than one person involved in either attack.
