Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion responds to the morning’s two bombings by saying that the city is “ready” and “we won’t let it disrupt our way of life.”

While noting that it’s still unknown who is responsible for the attack, Lion also tells Army Radio that it’s necessary to invest “billions” of shekels to improve conditions for East Jerusalem residents, as well as fighting the pathways that lead to terror.

One person was killed and 18 injured by explosions at two bus stops at entrances to Jerusalem.
