ISIS Claims Responsibility for Jerusalem Attack

ISIS Claims Responsibility for Jerusalem Attack

Emad Zahran, the head of Deir Abu Mashal Local Council, said the soldiers closed all roads leading to the village, starting late at night Friday, and installed an iron gate, sealing the main entrance, and prevented the Palestinians from entering or leaving it.

But after Friday's attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chose to cancel permission for Palestinians from the West Bank of all ages to visit family members in Jerusalem and Israel, police said.

Thirty-eight Israelis, two American tourists and a British student have been killed in stabbings, shootings and car-rammings, many of which took place in the vicinity of the Old City's Damascus gate.

He slammed the Palestinian leadership for not denouncing the attack while condemning Israel for killing the terrorists.

Israeli police said on Friday that the attackers were from Palestinian cities in the occupied West Bank; two from Ramallah and one from Hebron. The terrorists arrived in Jerusalem on Thursday in order to surveil the scenes of the twin terror attacks.

He said Hamas's newly elected Gaza leader, Yehya al-Sinwar, had met in Cairo with Egyptian officials and discussed securing the frontier with Egypt's Sinai peninsula, where Islamist State terrorists have killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers. The officer was pronounced dead at a hospital.

It was during this time that Hadas Malka, a 23-year-old sergeant major, was critically injured by the attackers.

IL man who shot at GOP lawmakers had history of criminal run-ins
Representative Steve Scalise , two political staffers and two Capitol Police officers sustained gunshot wounds from the rampage. In March, Hodgkinson met with sheriff deputies in IL after they received calls that he had fired 50 shots on his property.

The jihadist group, in an online statement, said three IS fighters had targeted "a gathering of Jews" in an operation on Friday during which the three attackers were killed by Israeli police.

"The attack was carried out by three Palestinians, two PFLP members and a Hamas member", said Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri. The gun jammed and the Arab with the knife stabbed the woman officer.

Israeli authorities also revoked the permits of family members of the three Palestinians who committed the attack, including long term work permits.

Meanwhile, Rosenfeld emphasized that "a significant police presence can be felt in the area around the walls of the Old City and the different quarters". Both the incidents took place nearly simultaneously.

An Israeli policeman securse the scene of the shooting and stabbing attack outside Damascus gate in Jerusalem's old city June 16, 2017.

The Israeli forces said the assailants appeared to have acted independently, like numerous attackers in a wave of unrest that has rocked Israel and the occupied territories since October 2015.

Israeli police said they killed three Palestinians involved in the attack.
