- Story Text:Six people were killed on Friday (July 21) in the bloodiest spate of Israeli-Palestinian violence for years, prompted by new Israeli security measures at Jerusalem's holiest site.
Three Israelis were stabbed to death in a Jewish settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, hours after three Palestinians were killed in violence prompted by Israel's installation of metal detectors at entry points to the Noble Sanctuary-Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem's walled Old City.
The three Israelis stabbed to death and a fourth who was wounded were from the fenced-in West Bank settlement of Neve Tsuf. Israeli media said the three dead were all members of the same family, two men aged 60 and 40 and a woman of 40.
The wounded woman, 68, was hospitalised with stab wounds to her back, Israeli media said. The family had sat down to a traditional Friday evening meal when the attack occurred, according to Israel Radio.
Israel Radio identified the attacker as a 19-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank village of Khobar near Ramallah. It said he was shot, but his condition was not initially known.
