This is a breaking story, and we will update you with information as we learn more, but The Times of Israel reports that an explosion on a Jerusalem bus has left at least 16 wounded:
At least 16 people were injured in a bus bombing in Jerusalem Monday afternoon, police said. Two of them were badly injured, one of them critically.
The number 12 bus exploded as it was passing near the Talpiot neighborhood in the southern end of the capital carrying a number of passengers at around 5:45 p.m., police said. The blast set a second bus and a car nearby on fire, injuring several more people.
Jerusalem police chief Yarom Halevy told media the blast was caused by an explosive device placed on the bus, but it was unclear how the bomb got there and if the attack was an attempted suicide bombing.
“When a bomb explodes on a bus it is a terror attack,” he said.
Please pray for the wounded and for God's hand of protection over Israel and her people.
