Three Israelis were injured Wednesday in a stabbing rampage outside of Jerusalem’s Old City, police said.
Police shot and killed a pair of knife-wielding Palestinians after they attacked Jewish pedestrians outside the city’s Jaffa Gate, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
Three Israelis were wounded in the chaos, one of them possibly by policemen who were trying to take down the assailants, Samri said. Police did not detail the severity of their wounds.
Jaffa Gate is a popular spot for tourists visiting Jerusalem’s walled Old City.
Since mid-September, near-daily Palestinian stabbings, shootings and car ramming attacks have killed 19 Israelis and an American student.
At least 120 Palestinians have died by Israeli fire in the same period, including 82 said by Israel to be attackers. The rest have been killed in clashes with Israeli security forces.
