Israeli police killed in Jerusalem attack

Saying that the closing could increase tensions in Jerusalem, Haaretz reports that the last time the complex was closed for Friday prayers may have been in 1990. "A chase ensued and the three terrorists were killed by police", Simri said.

Police recovered two Carl Gustav rifles and a pistol from the bodies of the attackers.

Jordan, which condemns violence, called for the opening of an investigation into the incident, he said.

Shin Bet, Israel's internal security service, identified the attackers as Muhammad Ahmed Jabarin, 29; Muhammad Hamid Jabarin, 19; and Muhammad Ahmed Mufdal Jabarin, 19. The attack on the Israelis resulted in Israeli forces blockading the Al Aqsa mosque compound and preventing Friday prayer for the first time since 1967, according to Palestinian sources.

"The attack forced the government of Israel to temporarily close the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif to conduct its investigation", the press secretary said.

The compound is the holiest site in Judaism and the third-holiest in Islam. When approached by police, he got up and was killed. Worshippers dispersed after the prayers without incident.

The top Muslim cleric in the Holy Land, Mohammed Hussein, is based at the Muslim-administered shrine.

The attackers were then pursued back to the compound, where they were killed.

None of the statements mentioned the reason for Israel's rare temporary closure of the Temple Mount.

Israeli police detained the senior Muslim cleric of Jerusalem after an attack in the city that left two Israeli police officers dead, a son of the mufti of Jerusalem said.

Three Palestinian citizens allegedly fired on police units near the Lions' Gate, a popular religious site in the area.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack while speaking to Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu over the phone.

Jerusalem Chief of Police Yoram Halevi has ordered the Temple Mount closed, evacuated, and Friday prayers canceled.

BYU released a security update on the center's website on Friday.

The holy compound is known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Muslims as Noble Sanctuary.

Israel says at least 176 of those killed were carrying out attacks while others died in clashes and protests.
