Seven Killed In East Jerusalem Attack; Hamas Says Response To Jenin Raid

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

A gunman killed seven Israelis last week outside a synagogue in East Jerusalem in one of the worst attacks in Israel in years. The attack was staged on International Holocaust Remembrance day.  Nine people were injured.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised immediate action but that any response would be done with “determination and composure.”  The attacker, a 21-year old resident of East Jerusalem, was shot and killed by police as he tried to flee. While no group claimed responsibility for the attack, a Hamas spokesman said that the attack was connected to the Israeli raid of the Jenin refugee camp last week in which 9 Palestinians were killed.
