When all eyes were on Gaza, violence took hold in Jerusalem. Seven Israelis were shot dead outside a synagogue in a settlement in the eastern part of the city. Police pursued and killed the shooter, a Palestinian from Shuafat, a nearby neighborhood, who committed what he did by shooting from his car at worshipers who were leaving prayers at the time.

This came only 24 hours after the military operation in Jenin against the Islamic Jihad movement, in which Israel killed 10 Palestinians.

This Palestinian faction described the attack on Jerusalem as “a heroic act that confirms that the enemy only understands the language of force.” This is the deadliest attack in the holy city since 2008. We must see the reaction of Netanyahu and his government.
