Three people were killed by two Hamas gunmen on Thursday during morning rush hour at a bus stop in Jerusalem, and Israel reaffirmed its determination to eradicate the Palestinian Islamist group, whose murderous rampage on October 7 sparked the Gaza War.
According to authorities, an armed citizen and off-duty troops shot and killed the attackers, who were Palestinians from East Jerusalem. In addition, the gunfire injured at least eight additional persons.
