Two armed assailants parading with knives and axes attacked some worshippers at a Jerusalem Synagogue on Tuesday leaving four dead and at least six injured.
Later on, the Israeli security armed forces intervened killing the armed men in a gun duel. They later made arrests of the identified family members of the assailants in the Jabal Mukaber Neighborhood of East Jerusalem. Israeli police spokeswoman confirmed the arrest of nine Palestinians.
Palestinian media named the attackers as Ghassan and Udai Abu Jamal, cousins from Jabal Mukaber, and said they were members of a small militant group.
