BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A gunman shot and injured an Israeli soldier in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli media and police said.

The Israeli news site Ynet said initial reports suggested that a man on a motorcycle opened fire at a soldier near Hebrew University.

The soldier, a man in his 20s, was seriously wounded and taken to a local hospital for treatment, the Ynet report said.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld tweeted "police respond to shooting incident near Wadi Joz area in Jerusalem. One man injured moderately/seriously. Police looking into background."

"One man injured taken to hospital for treatment. Police searching for suspect that fled the scene," Rosenfeld said in a second tweet.

Later, he added: "Police heighten security in Jerusalem after 2 terrorist attacks today. Units mobilized in different areas & search continuing for terrorist."

Earlier Monday, Israeli police shot and killed a Palestinian man who rammed an excavator into a bus in East Jerusalem, knocking the bus on its side and running another man over in an apparent attack.
