Islamic State Claims Responsibility for Jerusalem Attack

Islamic State Claims Responsibility for Jerusalem Attack”

An Israeli policewoman was stabbed and killed in an attack outside Jerusalem's Old City and security forces shot dead three suspected Palestinian assailants, police said.

At one location, police said two men used a firearm and knives to attack a group of Israeli police officers, while at the other site, a man went on a stabbing spree and fatally wounded a border policewoman.

Islamic State took responsibility for the attack on Friday, in which one Israeli police officer was killed and another wounded, according to the group's Amaq news agency.

"The attack was carried out by three Palestinians, two PFLP members and a Hamas member", said Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri.

Police spokeswoman Luba Simri said the Israeli military had so far found no connection between the three assailants and any armed group.

"There are no indications that the act was directed or influenced by a particular organization", it added.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses to the reported incident said Israeli forces opened heavy random fire in the crowded area. "I am appalled that once again some find it appropriate to justify such attacks as 'heroic.' They are unacceptable and seek to drag everyone into a new cycle of violence", he said.

At least 252 Palestinians and one Jordanian citizen have also been killed since the violence started.

Israel had eased restrictions on the entry of Palestinians from the West Bank to Jerusalem for Ramadan.

Netanyahu, however, did not revoke the permission given to Palestinian men aged over 40 from the West Bank to enter Jerusalem for Friday prayers, police said.

The Tel Aviv regime has tried to change the demographic makeup of Jerusalem al-Quds over the past decades by constructing settlements, destroying historical sites and expelling the local Palestinian population.

The three attackers were identified as as Bara Ibrahim Muhammad Saleh, 19, Adel Hassan Ahmad Anakush, 18, and Osama Ahmad Mustafa Atta, 19.

Damascus Gate is adjacent to the wall of the East Jerusalem's Old City, a busy area with predominate Palestinian presence. The president vowed Israel "will prosecute all those who aid terrorists, wherever they may be".

Thirty-eight Israelis, two American tourists and a British student have been killed in shootings, car-rammings and stabbings since a wave of Palestinian street attacks began in October 2015.

The terror groups ISIS and Hamas both took credit for a pair of terror attacks in Jerusalem on Friday, then sparred over who truly was responsible.

The group opposes any peace talks with Israel and calls for liberating Palestinian territories by force, but their violent attacks are very rare and mostly carried out by individuals.
