An Israeli soldier in uniform waiting at an eastern Jerusalem bus stop was shot in the stomach in what police said was likely a terror attack.
The soldier, in his 20s, reportedly is hospitalized in critical condition following Monday’s attack near the Hebrew University campus in Mount Scopus.
Less than three hours earlier, a tractor attack near the border between western and eastern Jerusalem left one man dead. Police called the incident a terrorist attack.
In the shooting, the gunman, reportedly dressed in black, shot the soldier and ran to a motorcycle before fleeing the scene in the direction of the Arab town of Wadi Joz.
Jerusalem Police Chief Yossi Pariente told reporters the incident was likely a terror attack.
Police have heightened security in Jerusalem in the wake of the two attacks.
