At least three Israelis were killed and a fourth wounded in a terror attack in the town of Har Adar northwest of Jerusalem Tuesday morning.
A police spokesperson reported that four Israelis were wounded, adding that the incident appears to have been a combination shooting and stabbing attack.
According to initial reports, at 7:14 a.m. a terrorist opened fire on a group of Israelis near the back gate of Har Adar, used by Palestinian Arabs who work in the town.
Police say the terrorist aroused the suspicions of security forces stationed at the gate. The terrorist then drew his weapon and opened fire.
Emergency medical teams from MDA have been dispatched to the scene and are currently treating the wounded. MDA officials reported that three of the injured were in critical condition and the fourth in serious condition.
Army Radio later reported that three of the wounded had succumbed to their injuries.
The terrorist was shot and killed by security forces.
