Terror in Jerusalem: Four dead after truck is driven into group of soldiers
The four dead – three women and one man – were in their 20s, the Magen David Adom rescue service said.
Unconfirmed reports suggest some victims were trapped under the bus after the incident.
Police confirmed the perpetrator was “neutralised” at the scene by soldiers.
“It is a terrorist attack, a ramming attack,” a police spokeswoman said on Israel Radio, which reported that bodies were “strewn on the street”.
The soldiers were reportedly on a trip to the capital as part of the army’s “cultural Sundays” initiative.
Zero-hours contracts trapping young people in homelessness
“They have done what they are supposed to do, and it’s not delivering for them,” said Ms Barnes. “We hear of people moving on from our services getting into trouble.
“They are desperate to get experience to improve their long-term prospects. They are being pushed by the Job Centre to take these zero-hours contracts. But if all they can access is a zero-hours contract, it will definitely be harder for them to escape homelessness in the long-term.
“These are young people who have already been through a lot. It’s not the reward they deserve for doing the right thing.”
Her warning was issued at a time when thousands of young people are likely to be working on zero-hours contracts in retail and cafes while shoppers enjoy the January sales.
