Two Israeli policemen have been killed and a third wounded in a shooting attack near a sacred site in Jerusalem.
They were shot by three Israeli Arabs close to the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary).
Police chased the attackers into the site and shot them dead.
There has been a wave of stabbings, shootings and car-rammings of Israelis predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since late 2015.
Heard the one about the Israeli Arab who shot the Israeli policeman….just a little domestic between locals you know.
‘Israeli Arab’…in other words a Palestinian Israeli citizen...why won’ the BBC call the killers ‘Palestinian-Israeli’?
3 Palestinian-Israeli assailants kill 2 Druze-Israeli police officers at holy site where Israeli government forbids Jews to pray. Jerusalem.
