Palestinians deny IS claim for deadly attack on Israeli

The three Palestinian attackers were from the village.

Israel police identified the other two as Palestinians aged 18-19 from the Ramallah area.

Israeli defense body COGAT, posted the announcement on its Arabic language Facebook page. The group opposes any peace talks with Israel and calls for liberating Palestinian territories by force, but their violent attacks are very rare and mostly carried out by individuals.

Israeli forces shot three Palestinians dead in response to the reported attack.

It was during this time that Hadas Malka, a 23-year-old sergeant major, was critically injured by the attackers.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, the group's Amaq news agency said. "Her commanders and those under her command loved her and trusted her", Netanyahu said. He said Malka is "everybody's daughter and everybody's hero". Israel blames the violence on incitement by the Palestinian leadership.

COGAT said while the visiting permits were canceled, the prayer permits remained. But the attack Friday evening suggested that the three suspects were operating as a team and had planned the attack.

"Of course, the Palestinian Authority is refusing to condemn the murder and the same authority will now pay financial compensation to the murderers' families", he said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting.

Hamas politburo deputy chairman Khalil al-Hayya denounced the PA for asking Israel to reduce its supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip, as it refused to transfer funds to the Gaza authorities so they could pay Israel.

This includes the 30 fatalities confirmed so far. "And therefore, sadly, I have to assume that they are dead", he said. Hundreds have been left homeless, putting more pressure on officials in a city plagued by a chronic housing shortage.

Following the deadly attack, Israel immediately ramped up punitive measures, rescinding more than 250,000 permits allowing Palestinians to enter Jerusalem for Ramadan celebrations.

"Three terrorists coordinated an attack, armed with one Carl Gustav automatic weapon and knives", Rosenfeld said Saturday.

On Saturday, Israeli police rounded up over 350 Palestinians in Jerusalem in a mass crackdown on undocumented workers, a police spokesman said.

The soldiers warned that they will shoot and kill any Palestinian who is seen walking outside at night, and that the siege will continue until further notice.

Israel captured the territory with its key holy sites from Jordan in the 1967 war.

It claims the entire city as its indivisible capital but the Palestinians claim its eastern sector as the capital of their promised state.

Palestinians say those attacks result from anger over decades of Israeli occupation.
