Three attackers shoot at police in Jerusalem before being killed

Three attackers shoot at police in Jerusalem before being killed

All three attackers were neautralised after exchange of gunfire, said the local authorities.

Jerusalem's holiest site is known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.

Palestinian terrorists wounded four Israelis - two critically - in a shooting attack in Jerusalem's Old City.

Netanyahu told Abbas there would be no change in the status quo of the holy sites and called for calm from all sides, WAFA said.

The suspected assailants were Arab Israelis, who are Palestinian, from Umm al Fahm, the Israel Security Agency said in a statement.

Israel says Palestinian incitement has fuelled the attacks.

Police have closed Temple Mount for worshipers until the investigation is completed.

Police said Friday Muslim prayers would not be held at the site following the shooting.

In a separate incident on Friday, Israeli forces shot dead an 18-year-old Palestinian during a raid in Dheisheh refugee camp south of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank.

280 Palestinians have been killed in the same period, majority assailants, according to the Israeli police.

Two of the Israeli men hurt are in a critical condition, according to medical officials. The site would be reopened for prayer, but gradually and according to security assessments, Netanyahu said later Friday.

"I began performing CPR on one of the victims near the [Al Aqsa] Mosque", Seder said. For attacks used not only firearms, but knives and cars.

Some reports in the Israeli media also suggested the attackers were Israeli citizens of Palestinian origin.

The site has been a flashpoint for violence in the past, with friction there sparking major rounds of Israeli-Palestinian violence. The attack is still under investigation and will force us to look into existing security arrangements at Temple Mount and in its vicinity.
