BBC reports:

Israeli police have shot dead three Palestinians after a deadly knife attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem, in which a policewoman died.

Two of the Palestinians attacked police officers with guns and knives while the third stabbed the policewoman, police say.

The three were identified by police as two men aged 18 or 19 and another man, all from the West Bank.

The Old City had been crowded with tens of thousands of Muslim worshippers.

They were attending Friday prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque.

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Israeli restrictions have been eased for Palestinians from the West Bank to travel to Jerusalem.

Police said there was “no indication” of a link between the suspects and a terror group.

At least three other people were injured in the attacks, two of them Palestinian bystanders who were hit by gunfire, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports.

A gun used by one of the attackers reportedly jammed.

The dead policewoman was named as Hadas Malka, 23.

Forty-two Israelis have been killed in knife, gun and car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since October 2015.
