The U.S. State Department says the 3-month-old baby killed in a suspected terrorist attack in Jerusalem was reportedly an American citizen.
Wednesday evening, a Palestinian man drove onto a sidewalk in a busy intersection in Jerusalem, plowed through several passengers and crashed into a light rail station, injuring eight people and killing the American infant.
A medic and first responder described the incident from eyewitness accounts: "They said the car came out of nowhere. The stroller flew into the air and the baby was found 10 meters away from the stroller.”
One woman is also reportedly in serious condition while others suffered minor injuries. After the accident, police say the suspected terrorist tried to flee the area but they gunned him down. He was taken to a hospital and later died from the wounds. (Video via YouTube / tazpit tazpit)
The U.S. government hasn't released any further details about the American baby and hasn't said if they plan any kind of response. Meanwhile, Israeli authorities do believe the incident was an act of terrorism.
An Israeli official is quoted by RT saying, "The driver ... has a terrorist background. He has served time in jail for terror activity."
And the spokesperson for Israel's Prime Minister's Office said the 21-year-old suspect was, in fact, a member of Hamas. (Video via BBC)
Shortly after the alleged attack, the Times of Israel says dozens of masked Palestinians took to the streets in nearby neighborhoods where they vandalized cars and set off fireworks.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly ordered increased security in the area and placed blame on Hamas for inciting the violence.

A man is in custody after scaling the White House fence and making it onto the North Lawn Wednesday evening — the third instance of someone jumping the White House fence in the past two months.
Fox News obtained a video of the suspect fighting off one of two Secret Service dogs. He reportedly got 20 to 25 yards from the fence before being stopped.
JIM ACOSTA VIA CNN: "At that point, the Secret Service released its K-9s on that individual. He was taken down by two dogs almost immediately, I am told."
And according to initial reports, those dogs seemed to be the biggest difference between this latest incident and the one in which a man — 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez — made it into the White House Sept. 19.
In response to the Sept. 19 incident, the Secret Service installed a second fence and changed safety protocols, including locking the White House door.
It's uncertain if security around the White House had been stepped up even more Wednesday following a deadly shooting at a Canadian government building. The suspect and the Secret Service dogs were later treated for injuries.
