The explosions came hours after a 16-year-old Palestinian teenager was killed by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to Palestinian officials.

The first explosion took place at about 7am (04:00 GMT) near an Israeli bus station along a highway on the western entrance into Jerusalem that is usually packed with commuters.

Seven people were injured in the first explosion, according to medics, with at least two in a serious condition.

The second explosion, which officials described as “controlled,” took place less than half an hour later at the Ramot junction, in northern Jerusalem. Officials said five people were lightly injured from shrapnel.

Reporting from Ramot, Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher said police believe the first incident was caused by “explosives packed inside a bicycle left at a bus stop”.

Both explosions are believed to have been activated from a distance.
