“A tractor driven by a Palestinian man rammed into a bus in central Jerusalem early Monday afternoon,” timesofisrael.com reports. “A male pedestrian, later named as Avraham Walz, 29, was run over by the tractor as it headed toward the bus and was killed. The tractor driver, identified as East Jerusalem resident Muhammed Naif El-Ja’abis, 23, turned the bus over onto its side during the attack, making several efforts to do so before he succeeded. The bus driver as well as five others were lightly hurt.” And then, a good guy with a gun . . .
A police officer and Prisons Service official who realized what was happening ran up to the tractor and fired a volley of shots at the terrorist as he sat in the cab and killed him, Jerusalem police chief Yossi Pariente said.
Of course, the story teaches us that the more good guys there are with guns, the safer our society. Either that or, in interest of anti-terrorism, we should ban excavators. [h/t DE]
