Israeli police officer killed in Jerusalem stabbing, 2 attackers shot dead

The 23-year-old staff sergeant died of her wounds at Hadassah Hospital in Mount Scopus.

The Israeli police relaxed its open-fire regulations in December 2015, permitting officers to open fire with live ammunition on those throwing stones or firebombs as an initial option, without having to use non-lethal weapons first.

In total, four others were injured in the ISIS attacks.

Following the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a phone consultation with the chief of police and public security minister, and made a decision to cancel the family visits, a police statement read.

While most attackers act independently, Israel accuses the Palestinian establishment of inciting the violence, including through glorifying attackers and supporting their families.

Jerusalem police chief Yoram Halevy identified the three perpetrators as Palestinians from the West Bank.

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Israeli restrictions have been eased for Palestinians from the West Bank to travel to Jerusalem.

The Old City had been crowded with tens of thousands of Muslim worshippers.

All three were from Deir Abu Mashal, a village near Ramallah, and had been arrested for or involved in "popular terror activity", a Shin Bet statement read.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today accused the Palestinian president's party of praising Palestinians who killed an Israeli policewoman, calling for an end to payments to the families of attackers.

The Islamist movement Hamas that rules the Gaza Strip condemned the shooting of the Palestinians as a "crime by the occupation".

An Israeli policewoman was killed in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem's Old City.

The incidents were the latest in a wave of violence that have claimed the lives of at least 246 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two Jordanian tourists, two USA nationals, two refugees from Sudan and Eritrea, and a British tourist since mid-September 2015.

Most of the Palestinians killed were allegedly carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, Israeli authorities say.

Maan news agency said two Palestinian teenagers were shot deal and one 30-year-old man was also injured and is being treated for his wounds.
