Israelis were targeted in two separate terrorist attacks in Jerusalem this afternoon.

One civilian was killed after a terrorist drove a tractor into a moving bus, causing it to tip over.

The unidentified victim died as a result of the collision; another seven were injured.

The terrorist was shot dead by police.

Another man, believed to be a 20-year-old IDF soldier, was shot near the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The attacker fled the scene on a motorcycle towards Wadi al-Jaz, East Jerusalem. Police were in pursuit.

The victim was said to be seriously hurt.

Meanwhile, the UK Foreign Office was said to be investigating reports that a British aid worker was killed in an Israel airstrike on Rafah, Gaza, on Sunday.
