Minst fem personer ble såret da en palestiner kjørte inn i israelske grensevakter. Fire av vaktene er blant de sårede. Bilføreren forsøkte deretter å knivstikke forbipasserende. Han ble skutt av sikkerhetsvakter og skuddet skal være livstruende.
Israelsk politi anser hendelsen som et terroristangrep.
The attacker has been identified as a Palestinian man in his 20s from East Jerusalem, police said.
Tensions flared in Jerusalem last year, both before and after the war in Gaza, but the city has been relatively calm recently.
The attack mirrors a series of incidents in the city last year in which Palestinians ploughed vehicles into groups of pedestrians, killing several people.
Friday’s attack happened at the same intersection where a Palestinian rammed his car into a crowded train platform and attacked people with an iron bar.
That attack, which happened last November, left one person dead and 13 injured.
