JERUSALEM: A blast near a bus stop at the entrance to Jerusalem injured at least seven people on Wednesday, the Israel Ambulance Service said.
Israeli Army Radio said the explosion was caused by an explosive device placed at the scene, but police did not confirm the report and said investigations were continuing.
No deaths were immediately reported, but at least two of the injured were seriously injured, ambulance services said.
Television footage showed debris strewn around the scene of the blast, which was cordoned off by emergency services.
The blast follows months of tension in the occupied West Bank after the Israeli military launched a crackdown following a series of deadly attacks in Israel.
