Two Israeli police officers were killed in a shooting Friday in Jerusalem’s Old City, just outside one of the world’s most important religious sites. Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said three armed assailants, whom he identified as terrorists, targeted police units in the area. One tried to stab police officer, he said. All three attackers were shot and killed and the area has been closed off, according to Rosenfeld. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals. “I can confirm that the two police officers who were previously in critical condition have died of their wounds in hospital,” Rosenfeld said. Rosenfeld said the attackers were “Israeli Arabs from Umm al-Fahm in northern Israel.”Police released images of what they said were the weapons used by the assailants, including a knife, a pistol and a homemade automatic firearm.

  1. The killers also know that their life is over, when they do something like that. Should we reflect how frustrated they must feel to end their own lives like that?
