Jerusalem shooting: Gunman kills one and wounds three in Old City - BBC News

A gunman has opened fire in Jerusalem's Old City, killing one person and wounding at least three others.



The gunman, who officials identified as a member of the Palestinian militant group, Hamas, was shot dead by Israeli security forces.

One civilian shot by the gunman died of his wounds in hospital. Another was seriously hurt, and two Israeli police officers were wounded, officials said.

Internal Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev said the attacker had a submachine gun.

The attack took place near a gate to a compound in East Jerusalem that is a frequent flashpoint for violence - the location of the Al-Aqsa mosque, one of Islam's most revered locations, and also the holiest site in Judaism, known as the Temple Mount.

The attacker was identified as a 42-year-old Palestinian man from East Jerusalem.

  1. A Palestinian man was shot and killed in the Old City of al-Quds by Israeli military forces amid tensions over settlement expansion plans and forced expulsion of Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East al-Quds.

    Official Palestinian news agency WAFA said Israeli troops on Sunday fatally shot the 42-year-old man near the Chain Gate, one of the entrances to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

    Israeli police immediately closed the site to visitors following the incident.

    Israeli media outlets claimed that the Palestinian man opened fire, and was shot dead by troops at the scene.
