Jerusalem:

A Palestinian gunman killed one man and wounded three others in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday, a police spokesman said.

The incident, the second attack in Jerusalem in four days, happened near the gates of the al-Aqsa mosque complex, Islam’s third holiest site. Jews regard the site as the remains of two ancient temples.

A police spokesman described the gunman as a resident of East Jerusalem and said he was armed with a submachine gun. Two of the people they shot were civilians, one of whom was killed, the spokesman said, adding that the other two injured were police.

Israel captured the Old City and other parts of East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East War in a move not recognized internationally.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future state. Israel maintains that the entire city is its eternal and indivisible capital.
