Jewish attacker shoots two Palestinians in Quds

A Jewish gunman shot and wounded two Palestinians in East Jerusalem on Friday, and police arrested the suspect at the scene, a police spokesman said.

The shooting occurred near the old walled section of the city. The victims, whose conditions were not immediately known, were rushed to hospital, Shmuel Ben-Ruby, a spokesman for city police said.

Palestinians protested the shooting by throwing stones at police.

Israel annexed East Jerusalem as part of its capital after capturing it in a 1967 in a move not recognised internationally. Palestinians also want the city as capital of a future state.
