Israel demands PNA condemnation on slaying of policewoman

Police spokeswoman Luba Simri said the Israeli military had so far found no connection between the three assailants and any armed group.

Since late 2015, Israel has been grappling with occasional fatal stabbing attacks by individuals on soldiers and civilians.

Police said two of the perpetrators opened fire and tried to stab a group of officers, while the 23-year-old policewoman was attacked nearby and died of her injuries. All of the terrorists were from the village of Deir Abu-Mashal, a village near Ramallah and had been previously arrested for security related offenses.

In the West Bank city of Bethlehem, an Israeli settler was injured in a stabbing attack, the Israeli army said in a statement.

Israel blames the violence on incitement by the Palestinian leadership. Hamas rejected the Islamic State's claim, saying that it was carried out by "two Palestinians from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and a third from Hamas".

During Ramadan, Israeli authorities permit men above the age of 40, women of all ages, and children younger than 12 years of age from the occupied West Bank to enter Jerusalem without a permit on Fridays, while all others are only allowed to enter with Israeli-issued permits. Israel deployed hundreds of extra police around the Old City of Jerusalem on Friday after Palestinian leaders called for a "day of rage" to protest at new Israeli security measures.

"The steadfastness of our forces enables us to continue to live here in Jerusalem and throughout the country, a life of security and routine in the face of the murderous forces of the terrorist organizations", he added, vowing that Israel "will persecute all those who help terrorism, wherever they may be".

Israel is a prominent subject in ISIS's propaganda output, with the group regularly stating that it seeks to take over Jerusalem, where the third-holiest site in Islam-the Haram al-Sharif, or Noble Sanctuary-and the most holy in Judaism-known to Jews as the Temple Mount-is located. The group said it had "no links outside Palestine", and justified the attack "in defense of our Jerusalem".

The incidents were the latest in a wave of violence that has claimed the lives of at least 250 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two Jordanian tourists, two US nationals, two refugees from Sudan and Eritrea and a British tourist since mid-September 2015.

Israeli authorities say most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks.
