The bombings in Jerusalem this morning were carried out by a cell numbering several terrorists who knew the terrain well and planned the attack long in advance, according to an assessment by defense officials quoted by Ynet.

The assessment reportedly says the attackers operated independently and were not guided by a handler in a larger terror group.

They remotely detonated the first bomb after ensuring that there were people next to it, then did the same with the second device, the officials say, according to the report
