Israeli police officer critically injured in Jerusalem stabbing, 2 attackers killed

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court

In its statement IS said the attack was "revenge for the religion of Allah and the sanctities of the violated Muslims".

Al-Quds said that Netanyahu threatens of more intensified measures in Jerusalem, where streets and gates were closed and West Bank residents were moved back to the West Bank.

The Hamas and People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine militant groups quickly retorted that the three attackers who were killed were their members.

But the attack Friday evening suggested that the three suspects were operating as a team and had planned the attack.

IS is not believed to have directed attacks in Israel, but bombings by militants connected to the group in other Arab countries have been common place.

A statement by Fatah carried on the official Palestinian news agency Wafa condemned the "killing" of the three Palestinians, without mentioning the circumstances leading up to their deaths.

"We are sad, that was the only opportunity for the kids to see the sea and see Jerusalem", she said.

Simultaneously, at least one assailant was killed after attacking passers-by at the nearby Zedekiah's Cave.

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the Palestinian Authority had agreed to halt payments to the families of slain attackers, including suicide bombers.

He called for the world to "demand the immediate cessation of Palestinian Authority payments to the families of terrorists, something that only encourages terror". She was imbued with a sense of mission of defending the State of Israel. In that period, some 250 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire.

At times the attacks were daily occurrences, but they have relatively subsided in recent months.

The funeral at a military cemetery in Ashdod began just after midnight on Sunday morning, about 24 hours after she died of her wounds sustained during the Friday night attack near the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The fate of the area is an emotional issue at the heart of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

After terror attacks, pro-Israel groups may criticize wire services for misleading headlines that focus on Palestinian casualties.

Palestinians say it stems from anger over decades of Israeli rule in territory they claim for their state.
