7 people were killed and 10 were injured in a synagogue shooting attack on the outskirts of Jerusalem. #Israeli police described it as a "terror attack" and said it took place in a synagogue in Neve Ya'akov.

A gunman opened fire Friday night near a synagogue in east Jerusalem, killing at least seven people and wounding several before he was shot and killed, Israeli police and medics said.

The shooting in the Jewish neighborhood of Neve Yaakov followed a deadly raid by the Israeli military Thursday in the occupied West Bank that killed nine Palestinians, with a 10th killed later north of Jerusalem.

After Friday’s shooting, a spokesman for the Magen David Adom emergency service said that in addition to those killed, three people had been taken to a hospital, including a 70-year-old in critical condition, a 20-year-old in serious condition, and a 14-year-old in moderate to serious condition.

Israeli police said the gunman was shot and killed, and large police force was at the scene
