An armed assault in Jerusalem has resulted in two deaths and five people wounded. One of the deceased was a six-year-old Israeli kid waiting at a bus station. The assumed offender, a Palestinian citizen, was instantly shot dead by security forces. Israel has declared they will be reinforcing settlements as the clashes in the occupied areas become more intense. An Israeli official has announced that five Palestinian aggressors were killed during a military operation. The incident happened near a Jewish settlement and is occurring concurrently with the intensifying conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Since the beginning of the year, communal violence has cost the lives of over forty people, mainly Palestinians.
