Israel: Teen killed in RCIED explosion in Jerusalem, 19 others injured


15-year-old Aryeh Shtsupak has been named as the teen killed in the Jerusalem terror attack on Wednesday morning.

An additional 19 people were wounded, one critically, in two explosions at the entrance to Jerusalem and the Ramot Junction on Wednesday morning in what police are treating as a coordinated double Palestinian terrorist attack.

The causes of the explosions were not immediately determined but Israel Police said that the one near the Central Bus Station 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. Another explosion went off minutes later near the Ramot Intersection in northern Jerusalem. The bombs were detonated remotely and were reportedly packed with nails and bolts.
