A video has emerged showing several Israelis being stabbed in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

The graphic footage shows a Palestinian crashing his car into a bus stop on Malchei Israel street in Jerusalem.

The man gets out of his car and then attacks several people with what appears to be a cleaver.

The attacker is then shot by an unidentified man who rushed on to the scene.

One of the Israelis, identified by the Jerusalem Post as 60-year-old Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, reportedly died of his wounds. Several others were injured in the attack.

The Palestinian was identified by Ma'an News Agency as Alaa Abu Jamal, and he too later died from his injuries.
