Palestinian man kills two Israeli in Jerusalem

A Palestinian man opened fire and killed a 60 year old  Israeli pedestrian woman and a policeman in Jerusalem.

BBC gathered that both men have died and six others have been wounded from the attack in East Jerusalem.

The gunman fired at a tram stop, then drove off. He stopped after a police pursuit and opened fire again, killing a policeman before being shot dead.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the "very fast, very determined action of the Israeli police". The police confirmed the attacker was from Palestine.

It has been reported that thirty-five Israelis been killed in a wave of knife, gun and car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since October 2015.

More than 200 Palestinians - mostly attackers, Israel says - have also been killed in that period.
Israel says Palestinian incitement has fuelled the attacks. The Palestinian leadership has blamed frustration rooted in decades of Israeli occupation.
