Video: Palestinian shot dead after killing Israeli with earthmover

Published: Updated:

A video posted online on Monday showed the moment police in Jerusalem opened fire and killed a Palestinian who had rammed into the side of a bus with an earthmover, killing an Israeli in the process.


The incident occurred in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of the city, Reuters news agency said.


The Palestinian driver was quickly shot dead by two policemen who happened to be at the scene, foiling what police described as a "terrorist attack,” The Associated Press reported.


Shortly afterward, as his body lay in the street where the incident happened, scores of curious onlookers rushed to the scene, both Israeli and Palestinian, the AP said.


As the police went to remove the body, some Israelis in the crowd began whistling and chanted “Death to Arabs.”
