ISIS claims responsibility for al-Quds stabbing incident

ISIS claims responsibility for Jerusalem terror attack
ISIS has claimed its responsibility of the attack in al-Quds (East Jerusalem) that left one Israeli police officer dead, The Jerusalem Post reported Saturday.  

A coordinated shooting and stabbing attack near East Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday evening resulted in the death of Border Police officer Hadas Malka.

About three Palestinians carried out the attack.

Malka was in formation with other officers when two persons, one with a knife and the other with a sub-machine gun, attacked a different group of officers. The two men were repelled, shot, and killed. But as Malka rushed to the scene where the officers had been targeted, a third Palestinian moved forward and stabbed her. Police quickly took him out and then rushed Malka to the hospital for surgery.

In total, four others were injured in the incident.
