Explosions at two bus stops near entrances to Jerusalem; 13 injured, 2 critically

Two explosions rocked two bus stops near the entrance to Jerusalem early Wednesday morning, injuring at least 13 people, including two in critical condition, police and medics.

The first blast occurred near the main entrance to Jerusalem in Givat Shaul, shortly after 7 a.m. during peak traffic hours. The blast injured 11 people, including two seriously and two critically, medical officials said.

The victims were taken to Shaare Zedek and Hadassah Ein Kerem hospitals in the city.

The second explosion occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m. at the Ramot intersection, another entrance to Jerusalem. According to medics, at least two people were slightly injured in the second explosion.

Initial Hebrew-language media reports suggested the blasts were caused by an explosive device left in a bag.

Security services have swept the area in an attempt to find suspects involved in the blast.

Police said they closed Route 1 after the first explosion.

This is an evolving story.

Israeli policy is straightforward

I joined The Times of Israel after years of covering US and Israeli politics for Jewish news.

I believe that responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means providing a 360-degree view of their words and actions—not just what is happening, but what it means in the broader context of Israeli society and the region.

This is difficult to do because you can rarely judge politicians – you have to go the extra mile to present the full context and try to overcome your biases.

I am proud of our work in telling the history of Israeli politics direct and comprehensive. I believe that Israel will be stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do this difficult job well.
