Israel Says Officer Stabbed, 3 Attackers Shot in Jerusalem

20 June 2017, 04:28 | Darnell Patrick

The Islamic State group that it was behind the fatal stabbing but Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a leftist group, claimed the assailants came from within their ranks.

The attack with guns and knives near Jerusalem's Old City on Friday killed a border policewoman and wounded three other people. "The female officer was stabbed multiple times and in critical condition before being rushed to the hospital, where unfortunately, she died of her wounds a short while afterwards". "3 Arab terrorists shot by police units that responded at the scene".

"I call on the countries of the world... to demand an immediate cessation of Palestinian Authority payments to the families of terrorists", Netanyahu said. Earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that preparations are underway to destroy the homes of the Palestinian attackers and tighten security at the entrance to the Old City, home to sensitive holy sites sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians.

"Let the Jews watch for the demise of their state at the hands of the soldiers of the Caliphate", the statement added.

The three attackers were identified as as Bara Ibrahim Muhammad Saleh, 19, Adel Hassan Ahmad Anakush, 18, and Osama Ahmad Mustafa Atta, 19. "Their grief is the grief of entire people", he 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. Israeli security services say the group has small pockets of support in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, but the majority of Palestinians support rival Palestinian factions Fatah or Hamas.

Following the attacks, the Israeli government took a number of punitive measures against Palestinian residents in the West Bank. Numerous stabbing attacks have targeted border police deployed at the Damascus Gate.

An approach road full of stalls opened especially for Ramadan was closed off by police. A shopkeeper said this would normally be one of the busiest nights of the year.

The attack was the latest bloodshed in a wave of Palestinian attacks on civilians and soldiers that began in 2015.

Israeli police also said that no connection has been found between the three Palestinians who carried out the attack in Jerusalem and any organisation.

Israel occupied Arab east Jerusalem in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community.

Israel considers the city its eternal, undivided capital while Palestinians want the eastern sector as the capital of their future state. It was the first time that the organization took responsibility for a terror attack inside Israel, a target which the group warned it will "wipe out".

Fatah had condemned Israel for shooting dead the three attackers, calling it a "war crime", and saying "the worldwide community's silence emboldened Israel to further spill the blood of Palestinians". Hamas terrorist activities, including a barrage of rockets on southern Israel in 2014, have led to three armed conflicts.
