Palestinians deny IS claim it carried out deadly attack in Israel

Meanwhile, Israeli military officials said they believed Friday night's attacks were carried out by local individuals without a formal link to any group.

Malka, who joined the Border Police 15 months ago, is survived by her parents, three sisters and two brothers.

"A proposal was made, and the topic is still in the stages of study and discussion", a spokesperson for the Israeli police said.

They also lined the threshold of the main mosque, where hundreds of worshippers had been stayed overnight for special prayers during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

The PFLP said its two attackers were relatives who were both former prisoners in Israeli jails.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group yesterday claimed responsibility for an attack in Jerusalem for the first time, saying it was involved in the fatal stabbing of an Israeli policewoman outside the walled Old City.

An AFP reporter could see a helicopter and several emergency vehicles at the scene, which was closed off by a wide police cordon. The incident occurred in North London outside of the Muslim Welfare House , which is located near the Finsbury Park Mosque .

Following an outcry from everyone from the Foreign Ministry to US President Donald Trump's son over an initial headline on Friday that read, "Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem", the news organization changed the headline to, "Israeli police woman stabbed to death in Jerusalem".

The extremist group has a major presence across Israel's southern border in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, from where it has claimed several rocket attacks into Israel.

Israeli police have shot dead three Palestinians after a deadly knife attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem, in which a policewoman died.

Four other people were injured in Friday's attacks, including another Israeli police officer and a Palestinian passer-by who had no involvement in the incident.

The dead policewoman was named as Hadas Malka, 23.

"The payments made by the Palestinian Authority to terrorists and their families encourage heinous attacks like we saw today", Dannon said.

When the wind picked up Sunday, Ernie Els thought of another major championship. "I don't think we ever really talked about golf". He finished at 16-under for the tournament, tying the lowest 72-hole score relation to par in the tournament's history.

The schism between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority took on an even more strident tone on Sunday as a Hamas leader called for a "national rescue front" against the PA, according to the Palestinian Ma'an news agency.

The Israeli forces said the assailants appeared to have acted independently, like numerous attackers in a wave of unrest that has rocked Israel and the occupied territories since October 2015.

According to Israel's Shin Bet internal security service, the three assailants, who were killed by Israeli security after the attack, were from the West Bank and had "a background in terrorist activities".

Thirty-eight Israelis, two American tourists and a British student have been killed in shootings, car-rammings and stabbings since a wave of Palestinian street attacks began in October 2015.

Palestinians say it stems from anger over decades of Israeli rule in territory they claim for their state.

Israel blames the violence on incitement by the Palestinian leadership.
