Death toll after double attack in Jerusalem rises to two

After the double attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday, the death toll has risen to two, according to hospital reports. The seriously injured Israeli Tadesa Teschuma succumbed to his injuries on Saturday, as the Shaare Zedek Hospital announced on Saturday.

One of the two explosions at a bus stop on the western outskirts of the city killed a 15-year-old Israeli-Canadian teenager and wounded 13 people. Half an hour later, another explosion occurred a short distance away, wounding three people.

According to information from security circles, the bombs were detonated remotely. It was probably a "combined attack" in which explosives were placed at both bus stops, it said. The driver of the bus injured in the second blast said the bus was very full at the time of the blast.

The radical Islamic Palestinian organization Hamas praised the attacks without acknowledging the deeds. "We congratulate our Palestinian people and our people in the occupied city of Jerusalem on the heroic action at the bus stop," said a Hamas spokesman on Wednesday. The organization described the attacks as a "price for Israel's crimes and aggression".

The Federal Foreign Office in Berlin condemned the acts: "The heinous attacks on bus stops in Jerusalem are an attack on the peaceful everyday life of all Israelis. The terror and hatred it is intended to spread must not gain the upper hand," said a spokesman. According to Israel's domestic intelligence service, the Shin Bet, these are the first bombings in Jerusalem since 2016, with 34 bombings foiled this year alone.
