Jerusalem Explosions: The twin blasts struck half an hour apart; police said

At least one person was killed and 14 were injured in two separate explosions targeting bus stations in Jerusalem on Wednesday, according to security and medical officials, with Israel’s public security minister describing them as “attacks.”
An explosion at a bus stop near Jerusalem’s western exit killed one person and injured 11. A separate bombing a short distance away destroyed a bus and injured three individuals, according to hospitals treating the wounded.

The twin bombings occurred half an hour apart, according to police, who added that explosives specialists, police, and forensic scientists were on the site “gathering evidence and checking the area for suspects.”

Dimiter Tzantchev is a European diplomat, Ambassador, Head of EU Delegation to the State of Israel.

According to the Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, a man died as a result of his injuries from the initial explosion. Doctors were treating another critical patient, two critically injured patients, and two slightly injured patients. The Hadassah Medical Center said that six people were hurt in the first bomb, and three more were lightly injured in the second.

According to the office, Defense Minister Benny Gantz was meeting with the head of the Shin Bet internal security agency and senior military officers.

This year has seen an increase in violence, notably in the occupied West Bank, where the Israeli army has conducted nearly daily raids following a series of fatal attacks on Israeli targets earlier this year.

Following the bombings on Wednesday, the Israeli military announced the closure of two checkpoints near the volatile West Bank city of Jenin.

During the early 2000s’ second intifada, or uprising, Palestinian terrorists routinely detonated explosives at urban bus stations, particularly in Jerusalem.
