    Israeli law enforcers believe that three terror attacks struck Jerusalem on Tuesday, local police spokesman Michael Singerman told RIA Novosti.

    TEL AVIV (Sputnik) — A wave of violence struck Jerusalem in the past weeks after clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces at East Jerusalem’s Temple Mount holy site in September. 

    "According to preliminary data, three terrorist attacks were carried out almost simultaneously in the city – a car attack on pedestrians, a shooting and a bus attack. There are casualties, including critical ones," Singerman said.
