JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say four worshippers have been killed in an attack on a Jerusalem synagogue.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says six people were wounded in the assault, which was described as a “terrorist attack.”
Samri says two assailants entered the synagogue on Tuesday with knives, axes and guns and attacked worshippers. The attackers were killed in a shootout with police.
Samri said the attackers were Palestinians from east Jerusalem.
The violence comes amid high tensions in the city, with a wave of attacks by Palestinians on Israelis killing at least six people in recent weeks.
