A man shoots people leaving the synagogue after Friday night prayers.
A terrorist attack took place at the Ateret Abraham synagogue in Jerusalem on Friday, January 27, as a result of which at least seven people died and 10 others were injured, the Jerusalem Post reports.
A 21-year-old man reportedly opened fire on people leaving the synagogue after Friday night prayers.
The terrorist was identified as Alkam Khayri from East Jerusalem. Before the attack, he was allegedly not associated with terrorist activities.
After he entered the synagogue and attacked the people, the shooter reportedly started chasing people who were trying to flee.
He then tried to flee the scene in a car and opened fire on Israeli police officers.
The police returned fire and killed him.
Later, Hamas spokesman Hazzem Qassem said the attack was a response to an operation by Israeli special forces in Jenin the previous day, in which nine Palestinians were killed.
Footage of the attack celebration in some Palestinian areas also appeared on social networks.
