Three Palestinian men have been shot and killed by Israeli police after a shooting incident, which left a female police officer dead and another injured in occupied East Jerusalem.
Police said the Palestinians were armed with guns, knives and explosives, and opened fire at Israeli authorities at the Damascus Gate on Wednesday.
Two Israeli female police officers were injured during the shooting and transferred to a hospital, where one of them later died, officials said.
The incident Wednesday was the first time that three Palestinians have been killed in the same place since the surge in violence which began in October.
