Who is a 13-year-old Palestinian boy?
A suspected terrorist incident in Jerusalem has left two people injured, just hours after a tragic shooting outside a synagogue. On Saturday morning, a “shooting terror attack” was reported in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan in east Jerusalem, according to Israel’s national emergency medical and ambulance service.
Police claim they sent a “large” force to the site and that a “shooting suspect,” who was reportedly a 13-year-old boy from east Jerusalem, was “wounded and subdued.”
How he attacked the victims?
Officers reported that a firearm used by the child, who was identified by police as a “terrorist,” had been found on the scene. The incident resulted in the injuries of two males, thought to be a father and son, who were 23 and 47 years old. Medical personnel said both were sent to the hospital in “moderate to serious” condition.
Are father and son fine now?
Two victims, a father, and a son were shot in the City of David, close to the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, according to the Magen David Adom rescue agency.
A 22-year-old IDF officer who was not on duty and his father, who was 47, was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
The boy is on a ventilator and in a bad condition, but he is stable, while his father is in a moderate state of health.
The attacker, a native of Silwan, was shot by the soldier who was carrying a weapon and by a member of the civilian group he had attacked.
He is having treatment while awake. He is a relative of Wadih Abu Ramoz, who was shot by police after hurling a Molotov cocktail, but neither the police nor the intelligence services are aware of him.
The attacker attacked five Jews who were strolling on the street toward the Western Wall, according to Chief Superintendent Dvir Tamim of the Jerusalem District Police, and opened fire on them. Some of them had weapons and shot back. We’ll be more visible on the ground, he promised.
Friday attack: What happened?
It occurs after a Palestinian gunman killed seven people on Friday near a synagogue on the outskirts of the city. As per hospital officials, three other people were hurt in that shooting, including a 15-year-old kid who was recovering from surgery. According to police, the shooter came about 8.15 p.m. local time (6.15 p.m. UK time) and called the incident a “terror assault.”
They stated that the shooting happened in front of a synagogue in Neve Yaakov, which Israelis regard as a neighborhood inside of Jerusalem. Most of the international community, including the Palestinians, view it as an occupied territory that was illegally annexed following the 1967 Six-Day War.

On Saturday, Israel Police announced that as part of their investigation, officers had detained 42 persons, including the gunman’s relatives. Following the incident on Friday, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that he had conducted a security review and made a decision on “urgent actions.” Mr. Netanyahu warned against breaking the law on one’s own and promised that Israel would act “determinately and calmly.”

Then, Gaza terrorists launched rockets, to which Israel reacted overnight with airstrikes. No injuries were mentioned in the reports.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed “grave concern” about the increase in violence and urged “utmost restraint,” according to UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric.
Shooting again in Jerusalem: Explained
After seven people were killed and three were injured in a terrorist attack near a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Neve Ya’akov neighborhood on Friday evening, police said on Saturday that they were elevating the nation’s alert level to its highest level.
An hour after the statement, a second incident outside Jerusalem’s Old City was carried out by a 13-year-old and resulted in two individuals being shooting and serious injuries.
Following the two incidents, police commissioner Kobi Shabtai commanded that a team of policemen from the prestigious Yamam counterterrorism unit be stationed in Jerusalem.
What did the police confess about the deadly attack?
Senior police officers announced that they would enhance their presence nationwide, notably in the capital, to the Kan national broadcaster.
In addition to strengthening the police, IDF chief Herzi Halevi gave orders to build up the IDF’s presence in the West Bank and along its security fence to be ready for future regional escalation.
Additionally, police have stated that they are worried about potential “price tag” retaliation attacks against Arabs. The defense establishment was acutely aware of the potential for escalation by Jewish right-wing extremists, according to an unnamed security source who spoke to the Walla news website.
They referred to remarks made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and claimed that when he urged people not to break the law yesterday, “it was not just based on a feeling.” There is a great concern that something will cause the area to catch fire. This is known to the security establishment.
The large protest against the judicial makeover, the soccer match, and an Eyal Golan concert was scheduled to take place in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening. According to police officials, all three of these activities will be secured and held as scheduled.
