    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday expressed his condolences to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the deadly truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem, Kremlin’s press service said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, a truck, coming reportedly from an Arab neighborhood, rammed into a group of soldiers getting off a bus in Jerusalem. As a result of the ramming attack, at least four soldiers were killed and 13 others injured. The truck driver was shot dead. The police classified the incident as a terror attack.

    “President Putin conveyed his condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the terror attack and wished a speedy recovery to all injured,” the press service said.

    Following the attack, Netanyahu said that all signs indicate that the driver was a supporter of Daesh terrorist group.
