Magen David Adom released Thursday a recording of an emergency call from a bystander who witnessed the terror attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday in which a three-month-old baby was killed and eight others were injured.

"Hello MDA? Hurry, hurry, Ammunition Hill at the light rail station, a girl - he drove up on the sidewalk, hit one in the head, hit another elderly one and a baby," the eyewitness can be heard saying in the recording.

The MDA dispatcher then informed the woman that an ambulance was on the way, asking her how many injured people there were on the scene.

"There is an injured baby, a girl who is bleeding, and another older woman," she answered.

"Has he been stopped," the dispatcher then asked.

"He was stopped and they neutralized him," the woman then said. "He isn't hurting anyone," she added.

The attack, which was captured by a security camera, took place at the Ammunition Hill light-rail stop a few hundred meters from Israel’s national police headquarters, situated across a densely traveled thoroughfare, shortly after 6 p.m., a senior police official said.

The terrorist was shot by police and late Wednesday evening he died in hospital.
