3 Americans, 1 Briton Killed by Two Palestinians in Har Nof, West of Jerusalem

Two Palestinians attacked a synagogue in Jerusalem on Tuesday, killing at least four Jewish worshipers. The attackers were killed in a shootout with police.

Four people were killed and six people were wounded Tuesday morning when two Palestinian cousins attacked Jewish worshipers with knives, axes, and guns in Har Nof, an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood that has a large population of English-speaking immigrants. Hamas praised the attack, but did not claim responsibility for the attack.

Police killed the attackers in a shootout.

Three of the people killed were Americans and one killed was a Briton.

President Barack Obama condemned the Tuesday morning attack at a Jerusalem synagogue in the strongest terms. Three American-Israeli citizens were murdered in the attack
