Attackers stabbed Isreali policewoman to death

According to a report, Israeli police have shot dead three Palestinians after a deadly knife attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem, in which a policewoman died.

Isreali police authorities said, two of the Palestinians attacked police officers with guns and knives while the third stabbed the policewoman.

All the Attackers were from West Bank, but identified by Isreali police as two men aged 18 or 19 and another man.

The Old City had been crowded with tens of thousands of Muslim worshippers.

They were attending Friday prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque.

BBC report that, during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Israeli restrictions have been eased for Palestinians from the West Bank to travel to Jerusalem.

Police said there was "no indication" of a link between the suspects and a terror group.

Similarly, no fewer than three other people were injured in the attacks, two of them Palestinian bystanders who were hit by gunfire.

A gun used by one of the attackers reportedly jammed.

The dead policewoman was named as Hadas Malka, 23.

"Israel says Palestinian incitement has fuelled the attacks. The Palestinian leadership has blamed frustration rooted in decades of Israeli occupation," BBC report said.
