Two Police Officers Killed In Attack At Israeli Holy Site

Posted: Updated:

Two police officers are dead after Palestinian gunmen open fire at a holy site in Israel.

It happened early Friday morning near a major shrine known to Jews as 'The Temple Mount' and Muslims as 'The Noble Sanctuary.'

The three gunmen were killed in a shootout with police shortly after opening fire.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the shooting.

However, the Palestinian Islamist group known as 'Hamas' did praise the attack as a 'heroic operation.'
