Police released disturbing video footage of the attack on Malkei Israel Street in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Geula on Tuesday which killed one and wounded two others.

A Palestinian terrorist drove his vehicle into a group of several people waiting at a bus stop. He then exited his car with a meat cleaver and began attacking the wounded and others with the implement.

Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, 60, was killed, apparently both from the vehicular attack and the axe wounds while two other people were seriously injured.

Shimi Grossman, a paramedic from the Zaka voluntary emergency response service and a resident of Geula, was one of the first on the scene.

He saw the vehicle stuck inside the bus stop that the assailant had struck and was told by eye-witnesses that the man had got out of his car with the axe.

The terrorist was shot and critically injured by police officers who arrived swiftly at the scene.

The terrorist was a resident of east Jerusalem and an employee of Bezeq phone company, Israel's main telephone service provider.

In a statement to the public, Bezeq phone company expressed its shock upon hearing of the terrorist attack.

"There were no early signs and there was no observed change in the employees behavior that could have indicated his involvement in criminal and terrorist activities," they said.

Earlier Tuesday, two Jewish men were stabbed to death, and three others seriously wounded in gun and knife attack on an Egged bus in the capital’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood, located next to the flashpoint Arab neighborhood Jabel Mukaber.

Shortly after the attack, dozens of police cordoned off the scene, as Magen David Adom paramedics and ZAKA AMT’s rushed the wounded to the hospital and cleaned blood from the bus, whose shattered windows had several bullet holes.

The Jerusalem attacks came shortly after a stabbing attack in the central Israeli city of Ra'anana. In that attack, a man was lightly wounded and the terrorist was apprehended by passersby. A second attack occurred in Ra'anana some 90 minutes later, in which four people were wounded.
