Damascus Gate is adjacent to the wall of the East Jerusalem's Old City, a busy area with predominate Palestinian presence.

A total of three Palestinian attackers, including the one who stabbed Malka, were shot dead by police during the two attacks. An Israeli policewoman was stabbed and critically wounded in the attack, police said, with security forces shooting dead three suspected Palestinian assailants.

The Israeli government has rescinded 250,000 permits for Palestinians to visit Jerusalem following the fatal stabbing of an Israeli policewoman in Jerusalem on Friday.

He also said the attack proved the Palestinian Authority's policy of security coordination with Israel was wrong, calling it "a national crime".

Separately, a Palestinian official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said on Sunday that Cairo had agreed in talks last week with a Hamas delegation to sell the group fuel to get the Gaza Strip's only power station back online. Malka reportedly worked to free her weapon while fighting off her attacker.

While acknowledging the BBC's clarification of a badly misleading headline about the terrorist attacks in Jerusalem Friday night, Foreign Ministry director-general Yuval Rotem on Sunday warned BBC consumers to be aware, because these mistakes happen "way too often".

Earlier this year, IS claimed that it had launched a rocket attack from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula into Israel.

The PFLP said two of the attackers were its members in a separate statement: "The media office of the PFLP armed wing mourns two of its hero comrades, two freed prisoners".

Back to the terrorists claiming responsibility - IS and Hamas are Islamist terror organizations (the PFLP is secular Marxist). Israel security forces raided the village a day after an attack in Jerusalem killed a police officer.

Forty-two Israelis have been killed in knife, gun and car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since October 2015. All three attackers were killed by Israeli forces.

The attack was the latest bloodshed in a wave of Palestinian attacks on civilians and soldiers that began in 2015.

While hard to verify the ISIS claim, the group claimed responsibility in the immediate hours after the attack, rather than waiting a day to claim, as they have done with previous attacks across Europe.

Saturday was the first time IS had claimed an attack inside Israel or annexed east Jerusalem.

Israel blames the Palestinian leadership for inciting the violence.

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