Two apparent terrorist attacks occured inside Israel on Monday, though it's not clear if they were linked to Hamas. Israeli authorities said that a 25-year-old pedestrian was killed in Jerusalem when he was fatally struck by an excavator, which was trying to flip over a bus. Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said the excavator driver was a “terrorist known to security forces from a separate incident.” He was shot by police, and three others were injured. Shortly thereafter, an Israeli soldier was also shot and wounded near Hebrew University. The assailant was reportedly on a scooter and fled the scene. These incidences occurred hours into the ceasefire declared by Israel, but it has been broken by attacks from both sides.
