Two Israelis have been killed and three injured in separate attacks in Jerusalem by
Palestinians who were then shot dead by police.
Police have now banned Palestinians from East Jerusalem from entering the Old City for two
days.
The latest violence comes two days after an Israeli couple were shot dead in the West Bank.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to hold emergency talks with security officials on
Sunday.
The restrictions will stop Palestinians from entering the Old City unless they live there. But
Israelis, local business owners and schoolchildren will be allowed in.

The first stabbing incident took place on Saturday evening, just after the end of the Jewish
Sabbath, close to Lion's Gate in the Old City.
The two Israelis killed were Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, 41, a resident of the Old City, as well as 21year-old Aharon Bennett who lives in a West Bank settlement.
The Palestinian man - named as Mohammad Halabi, a 19-year-old law student from a village
near Ramallah in the West Bank - attacked Mr Bennett, his wife, their two-year-old son and baby
daughter who were on their way to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, the Israeli
foreign ministry said in a statement.
Rabbi Lavi, a reserve officer in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was killed as he tried to defend
the family, the ministry said.
Mr Bennett's wife was seriously wounded, while their son suffered minor injuries and their baby

was unharmed, it added.

Tensions flare
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the Palestinian attacker had taken a gun from one of the
wounded men and opened fire at police and tourists. He was then shot and killed by an Israeli
police officer who had rushed to the scene.
Police later identified the attacker as a 19-year-old from al-Bireh, near Ramallah in the West
Bank. The militant group Islamic Jihad issued a statement claiming him as one of its members.
In the second incident, a Palestinian teenager stabbed an Israeli teenager on a street in West
Jerusalem in the early hours of Sunday. The attacker was also shot dead by police, similar to the
earlier incident on Sunday.
There has been a recent flare-up in tensions between Israel and Palestinians, with violent
confrontations between security forces and Palestinian youths in a compound holy to both Jews
and Muslims in East Jerusalem.
