R.I.P.  :salute:
A Palestinian driver intentionally rammed his truck into a group of Israeli soldiers on Sunday, killing four and wounding a dozen on a picture-postcard promenade overlooking Jerusalem's Old City and a park called the "Peace Forest."

The dead - all 20 years old - and the wounded were part of a large group of officer cadets who were getting an educational tour.

Israeli officials quickly labelled the truck-ramming a terrorist attack and said the driver was from a nearby East Jerusalem suburb.

The Islamist militant group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, applauded the "heroic operation" but did not take responsibility for it ...
This, from the BBC:
Israel's prime minister has said "all the signs" are that a man who killed four soldiers in Jerusalem supported so-called Islamic State (IS).

Although Benjamin Netanyahu did not give evidence for the claim, IS has previously threatened to attack Israel.

The Palestinian, who was shot dead, drove a lorry into a group of soldiers in the district of Armon Hanatziv.

An emergency meeting of the Israeli security cabinet approved detention without trial for IS sympathisers.

Three women and a man, all in their 20s, were killed in the attack and 17 others were wounded, police said ...
Canada's DefMin offers condolences:
“As a partner, friend and ally of Israel, Canada fully supports the right of Israelis to live in peace and security, free from the threat of terrorism and incitement to violence.”

“Canada condemns this terrorist attack that targeted Israel’s defence forces and expresses our deepest condolences to the victims and their families.”

Eventually the Israelis will be forced to drive the Palestinians out at this rate.

Eventually we are going to need truck control.

Or to ban trucks. This is getting ridiculous
