  1. Attackers Kill Five in Jerusalem Synagogue

    Three Americans are among the worshippers murdered in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood Tuesday morning. Two assailants, believed to be local Palestinians, stormed the synagogue carrying knives, axes and a gun, and wounded at least eight others before being killed by police. The killings targeted at rabbis was the deadliest attack on Israeli civilians in more than three years. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to “respond with a heavy hand” to the assault, which he blamed on “incitement” by Palestinian leadership.
