by Micha Gefen

As cars were waiting to cross through a Jerusalem checkpoint that stands between Maale Adumim and the eastern outskirts of the capital, three gunmen attacked pedestrians in their cars killing one and injuring 11, including a pregnant woman.

Matan Elmaliah, age 26 from Maaleh Adumim was murdered today when three Jihadist Arabs opened fire on cars waiting to cross into Jerusalem.

“This morning on 7:29am many calls were received on MDA’s 101 emergency call center about a terrorist who opened fire at vehicles on Route 1 from Jerusalem to Ma’ale Adumim, between Zaitim Junction and A-Zaim Checkpoint,” MDA said.

“A large amount of MDA personnel were immediately dispatched to the site, including First Responders from MDA’s Medicycle unit, ambulances, and MICUs. MDA teams arriving on scene pronounced the death of a man in his 20s and provided medical care and evacuated to Sha’are Tzedek, Hadassa Ein Karem and Har HaTzofim Hospitals 11 casualties: A 23 year-old female in serious condition, conscious, suffering from gunshot wounds in her upper body; four moderately wounded, fully conscious, including a 30-year-old female, suffering from gunshot wounds in her upper body; a 23-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds in his stomach and limbs; a 51-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds to his limbs; and a 52-year-old female suffering from gunshot wounds to her limbs.”

“In addition, MDA teams evacuated to the hospitals a 59-year-old female who was injured, and 4 anxiety victims.”

Two of the terrorists were killed at the scene and another escaped only two be neutralized later.

Jihadist Arab terrorists have begun to use the traffic jams created by security checkpoints into Jerusalem during rush hour times to strike. Weeks ago terrorists attacked the tunnel road checkpoint leading into Jerusalem from the south, killing a soldier.
