An Israeli teen has died of the wounds he sustained in a hit-and-run attack in Jerusalem earlier this week.

Shalom Baadani, 17, died at a hospital in the Holy City, where he was brought in critical condition after he was run over by a vehicle at a train stop in Tomb of Simeon, near east Jerusalem.

The yeshiva student is the second victim of the attack claimed by Islamist militant group Hamas. Border Police officer Jidan Assad, 38, was also killed.

The incident saw Ibrahim al-Akri, from the Palestinian Arab neighbourhood of Shuafat in East Jerusalem, plough his car into two crowds of civilians before being shot dead by Israeli security forces.

Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri praised al-Akri for his "heroic operation" and called him a "martyr".

"We congratulate the activity carried out by Jerusalem's blessed heroes that targeted soldiers and security men," the terror group said in a statement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly ordered to demolish al-Akri's home as a punitive measure.

Jerusalem has experienced almost daily episodes of unrest since the abduction and killing of three Jewish teenagers in the West Bank in July, which was followed by the retaliatory murder of aPalestinian boy who was burned alive.
