Surveillance footage has emerged of the Jerusalem truck ramming attack in which four were killed and 13 were wounded on Sunday. The footage shows the moments leading up to the the truck ramming into a group of Israeli soldiers visiting an observation post in the capital’s Jewish neighborhood Armon Hanatziv. 

The video was shot from a distance of about 30 meters from the scene of the attack, and shows the truck speeding through the crowd, narrowly missing the standing bus. It then stops and starts maneuvering, moving backwards and turning, before finally coming to a stop.

Authorities suspected terror motives in the incident. According to media reports, Hamas’s Qassam brigades says Jerusalem attacker, Fadi al-Qanbar, was a released prisoner, whom they called a “Mujahid” a term referring to a person engaged in a jihad, usually as a guerrilla warrior. Police confirmed that the perpetrator was neutralized.
