Murder of two civilians on bus was “self-sacrifice operation”

On Oct. 13, 2015, two Palestinian terrorists, Baha Alian (22) and Bilal Ranem (23) boarded Israeli bus no. 78 in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood with a gun and a knife and attacked passengers, killing 2 and wounding 4 Israelis. One of the terrorists was shot and killed by an Israeli security guard at the scene and the other was wounded.

"Occupied Jerusalem: Two Martyrs and dead and injured Israelis in a series of shooting, stabbing and running over operations (i.e., terror attacks)"
"The occupation police stated in their notice that the Magistrate's Court in Jerusalem issued a gag order on all information or details regarding the self-sacrifice operation carried out by two young Palestinians inside an Israeli Egged bus next to the Armon Hanatziv settlement in the southeast of the city. As a result [of the operation] one of them died as a Martyr (Shahid), and two settlers – one of them a Jewish rabbi – were killed."

Armon Hanatziv is not "a settlement" but a neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem.
