Israeli Policewoman Fatally Stabbed in Jerusalem

Three Palestinian men carried out attacks Friday near Jerusalem’s Old City, killing an Israeli policewoman before being shot dead by security forces.

Officials said there were two simultaneous attacks near the Damascus Gate, an approved entry point into the walled Old City of Jerusalem for adult Palestinian men to attend Friday prayers.

In one incident, two Palestinians opened fire on a group of police officers and also came at them with knives. In the other attack, the third Palestinian fatally stabbed an Israeli woman working as a border police officer. She was identified as Hadas Malka, 23.

Israel’s Shin Bet security agency said the three slain Palestinians were 18 or 19 years old. All were from the same village near Ramallah in the West Bank and had been detained in the past for suspected “terrorist” activities.

Four other people were injured in Friday’s attacks, including another Israeli police officer and a Palestinian passer-by who had no involvement in the incident.

The violence came as Muslims marked the third Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel have increased since 2015, although the pace of the once daily attacks had slowed lately. Since October 2015, violent incidents and other unrest has killed more than 270 Palestinians, more than 40 Israelis and a small group of foreigners.  

Israel blames the Palestinian leadership for inciting the violence. Palestinian officials reject the accusation and say the violence stems from anger over Israeli occupation of land sought by Palestinians.
