The bomb placed at the scene of the first terrorist bombing attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday morning was a powerful device containing explosives and black metal screws to increase collateral damage. 

The device placed at the scene of the second explosion, at the Ramot junction, was smaller and less powerful, according to the police's initial investigation.

According to security assessments, both explosives were probably placed by the same terrorist, although it is possible that he received instructions to do so from a terrorist group that he belonged to. 

Both attacks likely carried out by the same terrorist

He started his route by riding an electric bike to the entrance to Jerusalem in Givat Shaul, placing the first bag with the explosive next to the bus stop. He then continued on to the entrance to the Ramot neighborhood, where he placed the second bag.

Israel Police officers and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) have been reinforced with an additional 5,000 personnel and are attempting to track down the terrorist, as well as any other terror operatives who may be in the area and may have been involved in the attacks.
