No link between Palestinian Jerusalem attackers and any armed group -Israeli police


Untold in the headline, is the fact that the 3 dead Palestinians had carried out the stabbing and shooting attacks on Israeli officers (which killed a female Israeli officer) in the Old City in Jerusalem.

However, the Hamas and People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine militant groups quickly retorted that the three attackers who were killed were their members and accused IS of trying to undermine their efforts.

Israel previously had allowed permits for Palestinians from the West Bank to make family visits and had also given access for 100 Gaza residents to attend prayers at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque.

According to police, two perpetrators opened fire at a group of police officers who returned fire, and a third stabbed the border policewoman a short distance away before being shot.

The policewoman was taken to hospital in critical condition and later died of her wounds.

A statement from Netanyahu's office Saturday said he was considering turning the area near Damascus Gate, which has been the site of frequent attacks, into a "sterile area".

"The Daesh claim of responsibility is absurd", he said.

"I call on the countries of the world to condemn both the murder and those who praise it, and demand the immediate cessation of Palestinian Authority payments to the families of terrorists, something that only encourages terror", Netanyahu said.

The incidents were the latest in a wave of violence that has claimed the lives of at least 250 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two Jordanian tourists, two USA nationals, two refugees from Sudan and Eritrea and a British tourist since mid-September 2015.

The PFLP said Bara and Osama Ata had recently been released from several months in Israeli prison. The army sealed off the assailants' home village while troops went house to house, arresting two youths before leaving after a number of hours. Two of them were Palestinians from East Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu excoriated the Palestinian Authority and its ruling Fatah party Sunday for its failure to condemn Friday's terror attack in The Old City of Jerusalem, and called for intensified worldwide pressure on the Palestinians to end stipends to terrorists' families. In response to critics, the British broadcaster compiled an internal report in 2004 over its coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"Such terrorist acts must be clearly condemned by all".

Four other people were wounded in the incident, including two Palestinians from east Jerusalem and one from the West Bank city of Hebron.

About 42 Israelis have also been killed in attacks carried out by Palestinians since October 2015.
