Another 12 people were injured.

At least one person was killed and 12 others were injured in two explosions that rocked Jerusalem on Wednesday morning, reports the al-Jazeera pan-Arab television.

The first explosion occurred around 7:00 a.m. local time near a bus stop at the western entrance to Jerusalem. According to doctors, at least seven people were injured, two of them are in a critical condition.

The second explosion happened moments later also at a junction in West Jerusalem.

Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher, who was on the scene, reported that the police suspect that the first explosion was caused by explosives hidden in a bicycle left at the bus stop.

According to the Israeli police, it is strongly suspected that the attack was carried out by Palestinians.

As the portal points out, the explosions took place just a few hours after Palestinian officials said Israeli forces killed a 16-year-old Palestinian boy in Nablus, West Bank.

Following Wednesday morning’s explosions, the Israeli army announced the closure of two main checkpoints in the Jenin area based on the decision of the defense minister.

They point out that while the number of Israeli raids on Palestinian settlements has increased in the recent period, the number of Palestinian armed attacks has also increased in parallel.
