Israeli policemen killed in Jerusalem

Israeli policemen killed in Jerusalem

The Palestinian worshipers then held Friday prayers in streets near the mosque.

After the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Muhammad Hussein was prevented from from entering the complex, he called on Muslims to gather at the barricades, according to Ynet News.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the clash in a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but also said closing down the area could have repercussions.

A video has surfaced showing Israeli police responding to an attack by three Israeli Arab gunmen in Jerusalem Friday. "A chase ensued and the three terrorists were killed by police", Simri said. She said three firearms were found on their bodies.

All students and personnel at the BYU Jerusalem Center are safe and accounted for after a terrorist attack a mile from the center on Friday left two policemen and three attackers dead. The Israeli ambulance service Magen David Adom said two of the Israelis wounded were receiving life-saving treatment.

Haram al-Sharif is home to the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

The compound is the holiest site in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam.




Imam of Al-Aqsa Ekrema Sabri told Anadolu Agency that the Israeli forces are now banning prayer at the mosque. Israel says it won't reopen before Sunday. These kinds of weapons have been used in recent attacks, including a mass shooting at an upscale food court in Tel Aviv in 2016, where four victims were killed.

Since the start of 2017, 43 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis, while ten Israelis have been killed by Palestinians during the same time period.

No group has said it was responsible, though the militant Palestinian Hamas movement, which runs the Gaza Strip, praised the attack as a "natural response to the Zionist ongoing crimes".

This latest round of violence - sometimes referred to as the "Stabbing Intifada" - began in 2015 and although the attacks have become less frequent they have not stopped.

The U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, tweeted, "Shocked and horrified by the despicable attack today in Jerusalem".

Police said the attackers were Israeli Arabs from northern Israel.
