A shooting at a Jerusalem synagogue Friday has left at least seven dead and almost a dozen injured.
Israel's emergency services said police killed the gunman at the crime scene.
The attack marks another day of violence in the region after a deadly Israeli raid Thursday.
A shooting at a Jerusalem synagogue on Friday has left at least seven people dead and ten others injured, according to Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The country's Magen David Adom emergency services said police killed the gunman at the crime scene, according to Reuters, Associated Press, and CNN.
Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the shooting a terrorist attack on Twitter.
The shooting occurred during worship services on International Holocaust Remembrance Day and comes a day after Israeli forces killed nine Palestinians and injured others in Jenin, according to reporting from CNN.
That Israeli raid was the deadliest into the West Bank territory in decades, according to AP.
The surge in violence gripped the region before a planned trip by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the end of this month.
