Police are continuing to block parts of Jerusalem to prevent attacks on Israeli citizens from happening. Police blocked entrances to Jabal Mukaber, a district that was home to three men accused of killing three Israelis on Tuesday, ВВС reports.
Later, police said they shot dead a Palestinian who had stabbed an Israeli woman at Jerusalem's main bus station. Another Palestinian was gunned down after trying to stab a policeman near the Old City.
Since the beginning of October, seven Israelis have been killed and dozens wounded in shooting and stabbing attacks, the Israeli authorities say. At least 30 Palestinians have also been killed, including assailants, and hundreds have been injured, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
Speaking for the first time since the upsurge in violence began, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Israeli actions were "threatening to spark a religious conflict that would burn everything". He also accused Israel of carrying out "executions of our children in cold blood", citing the case of a 13-year-old Palestinian boy who was shot by Israeli police after he and a 15-year-old stabbed two Israelis on Monday.
However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the boy was alive in hospital, and described the Palestinian leader's comments as "lies and incitement". According to Netanyahu, the new security measures were aimed at preventing murders of Israeli citizens
Israel's security cabinet authorized police to seal off Eastern Jerusalem in retaliation of the latest attacks.
The city’s streets will be jointly patrolled by police officers and soldiers.
The authorities also announced that the homes of Palestinians who attacked Israelis would be demolished within days and that their right to live in Jerusalem would be taken away.
Tensions between Israel and Palestine came to a boiling point after clashes in Jerusalem, on the banks of the Jordan River and along the border of the Gaza Strip. Access to Jerusalem’s Old City has been restricted for most Palestinians since October.
