Teen Attacker Injures Two In Jerusalem

A 13-year-old boy opened fire and injured two people in Jerusalem on Saturday, hours after a gunman had killed seven outside a synagogue.

The shooting in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan in Jerusalem, wounded a father and son, ages 47 and 23, paramedics said.

Both were fully conscious and in moderate to serious condition in the hospital, the medics added.

Police said they shot and overpowered the 13-year-old, wounding him.

He was taken to a hospital, and there was no further word on his condition.

Friday’s gunman killed at least seven people, in a Jewish settlement in east Jerusalem.

Saturday's events also comes just a day before U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was set to arrive in the region.
