The attack occurred on a popular promenade overlooking the walled Old City of Jerusalem.
“It is a terrorist attack, a ramming attack,” a police spokeswoman said on Israel Radio, which reported that bodies were “strewn on the street”.
The attack appears to have targeted soldiers:

Truck attacks appear to be the weapon of choice now for terrorists. They’ve been used in France, Germany, and now Israel to inflict pain and death onto large crowds.
This can’t stand. We have to stand against radical Islam.
