  1. Israel Police Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld:

    The attack, one of the deadliest in an eight-month wave of violence, took place around 10 p.m. local time in an upscale area of cafes and restaurants near the central military headquarters and Defense Ministry compound. A Fox News producer in Jerusalem confirmed five others were wounded in the attack and in severe condition.

The gunmen disguised themselves as Orthodox Jews, a law enforcement source told Fox News. Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza, welcomed the attack and claimed the shooters as members of the organization. Hamas official Mushir al-Masri called the shootings a heroic operation and the group later issued an official statement promising the Zionists more surprises during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The Times of Israel reported that Fatah, Hamas' rival, issued a statement on Twitter saying Israel was reaping the repercussions of choosing violence against the Palestinian people. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz, citing Palestinian media, reported early Thursday that Israeli military forces had surrounded Yatta and were preparing to carry out arrests and interrogate family members of the attacks. Whatever action has to be taken will be taken based on the security assessments that will be carried out and implemented both tonight as well as tomorrow morning.
