HORRIBLE: Four dead, 13 injured during terrorist attack in Jerusalem

Another horrible terrorist attack has occurred in a temple in Jerusalem within the last hour. Four are dead and I can only hope that number includes the two terrorists who were shot dead by police. I fear it doesn’t but this report doesn’t distinguish. Thirteen others are injured.

ARUTZ SHEVA – Four people are dead and thirteen people are injured Tuesday morning, after two Arab terrorists entered a synagogue on Agassi Street in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood bearing guns, axes, and knives.

The terrorists began attacking worshippers, stabbing them, before opening fire.

Initial footage of the attack has now surfaced. Shots can be heard fired in the background:

Police who arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting began shot both attackers dead, it has now been confirmed.

“Two terrorists entered a Jewish seminary in Har Nof in Jerusalem armed with a pistol and an axe and there are seven people injured,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement. “The two terrorists were neutralized.”

Medics are currently at the scene treating the wounded, as photos from social media show.

“One of the worshipers came out full of blood, and said – there was a massacre,” a witness told IDF Radio. “Police took 11 minutes to arrive and paramedics arrived five minutes later.”

According to the Jerusalem Post, it’s at least four, possibly five dead. Also, 2 police officers are among the wounded:

At least four people were killed Tuesday morning in a terror attack at a synagogue in Jerusalem, according to Magen David Adom.

Eight other people were reported wounded, including four in serious condition, two in moderate condition and two who sustained light wounds.

Several reports suggest the terrorists were from East Jerusalem.
