A Palestinian rammed his truck into a group of Israeli soldiers on a popular promenade in Beit-ul-Moqaddas on Sunday, killing four soldiers and injuring about 15 others in a deliberate attack, police and emergency services said.

Police identified the driver as a Palestinian from Israeli-annexed East Beit-ul-Moqaddas and said he was shot dead. A dozen bullet holes pockmarked the windscreen, Reuters reported.

It was the deadliest attack in Beit-ul-Moqaddas in months and targeted officer cadets who were disembarking from a bus that brought them to the Armon Hanatziv promenade, a stone-laden and grass-lined walkway with a panoramic view of the walled Old City.
