Seven people were hurt, including two seriously, in an apparent terror shooting attack just outside Jerusalem’s Old City in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday, officials said, Report informs via The Times of Israel.

According to authorities, shots were fired toward a bus on a road near the Western Wall, and also at a nearby parking lot near King David’s Tomb, outside the Old City’s Zion Gate.

Her abdomen injury was described by doctors as “complex” and her life was said to be in danger.

The parents, son and daughter were waiting for a taxi at a bus stop when they were shot near King David’s Tomb. The family’s father was said to be in serious condition, sedated and on a respirator, while the mother was in moderate condition.
