The incident is believed to be a deliberate attack.
“It is a terrorist attack, a ramming attack,” a police spokeswoman said on Israel Radio.
Police wrote on Twitter that the truck driver apparently targeted a group of Israeli soldiers who had just gotten off a bus.
Photos taken at the scene show a Mercedes truck with windows riddled with bullet holes.
The incident happened on a popular promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, the station said. At least two of the victims were seriously injured, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said.
