Jerusalem gets up early. So when the first bomb attack hits a bus stop at the western entrance to the city, near the Givat Shaul district, around 7 a.m., it’s rush hour. A dozen people are injured. One of them succumbs in the morning. He was a 16-year-old Canadian-Israeli, Aryeh Shechopek, a resident of the Har Nof neighborhood – who still bears the painful memory of an attack in a synagogue in 2014, which caused the death of 8 people.
But it is not finished. Half an hour later, at 7:30 a.m., another explosion detonated at the Ramot crossroads, not far away. The damage is less. A bus is damaged, a few injured – in all, 22 people were injured in the double attack.
