Two shot dead by terrorist as they wait at a bus stop

TWO people were shot dead by a terrorist as they waited at a bus stop.

Four others were wounded — two seriously — when the gunman opened fire with a handgun at the bustling Re’em intersection in central Israel.

The terrorist, who appeared to have acted alone, was shot by an armed civilian.

Those who died were Yishai Gertner, 23, a yeshiva student from the ultra-Orthodox settlement of Modi’in Illit, and Sergeant First Class Ori Yaish, 27, a soldier in the reserves, of Modi’in.

He was off-duty at the time of the attack.

The terrorist was identified by the Shin Bet security agency as Fadi Jamjoum, 37, from east Jerusalem’s Shuafat.
