In Jerusalem : Israeli officer killed, three Palestinian attackers shot dead

19 Juin, 2017, 17:41 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Israeli police said the three Palestinian assailants were killed.

A second Israeli officer was also injured in the attacks.

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.

Since October 2015, a number of local and worldwide human rights groups have raised concerns that Israeli security forces have used excessive force when confronting Palestinians who had carried out attacks or been suspected of doing so.

The Palestinian Authority, which exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank, denies that and says assailants have acted out of frustration over Israeli occupation of land sought by Palestinians in peace talks that have been stalled since 2014.

Israel had eased restrictions on the entrance of Palestinians from the West Bank for Ramadan, including permitting daily family visits during Sundays through Thursdays.

"During Ramadan there are large numbers of (Palestinian) youths who enter without permits, they take advantage of Ramadan to be in Jerusalem", he told media at the scene of the attack.

One female police officer was critically injured, and later died, while four bystanders were wounded in the attacks, said the police.

Two of the men killed were said to be 18-year-old from al-Bireh, near Ramallah, while the third suspect was a 31-year-old from Hebron.

The jihadist group in an online statement said three IS fighters had targeted "a gathering of Jews" in an operation Friday, and warned that "this attack will not be the last".

Israel, however, said it saw no evidence of such a decision, and the Palestinians wouldn't confirm.

Since October 2015, more than 285 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli police during - or immediately after - alleged attacks on Israelis or in clashes with Israeli security forces, according to Palestinian figures.

The Old City in annexed east Jerusalem is one of the focal points of the wave of violence.

Israeli authorities, meanwhile, say nearly 50 Israelis have been killed in attacks carried out by Palestinians over the same period.
