JERUSALEM – Israeli police and medical services say an attacker has opened fire at the entrance to a town outside Jerusalem, killing three Israelis.

There was no word yet on the identity of the attacker but Rosenfeld says it’s being treated as a terrorist attack. The Magen David Adom medical service says a fourth Israeli is in critical condition.
Since 2015, Palestinians have killed 48 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shooting and car-ramming attacks. In that time, Israeli forces killed over 255 Palestinians, most said by Israel to be attackers.
