FOUR ISRAELIS KILLED IN JERUSALEM SYNAGOGUE ATTACK

Date:

The attack came as months of unrest gripped the city´s annexed Arab eastern sector. But none was as serious as Tuesday´s assault on the synagogue in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood on the city´s western outskirts as worshipers gathered for the morning prayers.

JERUSALEM (AFP) Two persons armed with a gun and axes burst into a Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday and killed four Israelis before being shot dead, in the deadliest attack in the city in years.

The attack came as months of unrest gripped the city´s annexed Arab eastern sector. But none was as serious as Tuesday´s assault on the synagogue in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood on the city´s western outskirts as worshipers gathered for the morning prayers.

Six other people were wounded, among them two policemen, before the two attackers were shot dead, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.

Arab east Jerusalem has been a tinderbox since early July when Jewish extremists killed a 16-year-old Palestinian in revenge for the murder of three Jewish teenagers, sparking a wave of clashes and rioting which has shown no sign of letting up.
