An Israeli civilian was killed and 3 others were wounded after a Palrstinian carried out a shooting in the capital of Israel, Jerusalem. 

The Palstinian himself was soon shot down after the attack.

Reportedly he used a submachine gun as well as a knife to carry out the attack.

Among the 3 wounded are 2 police officers who received minor injuries.

The incident occured in the Old City of Jerusalem near the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Earlier it was reported that the Israeli delegation criticized the UN for not providing necessary equipment for disabled people at the COP26 summit.

Israel’s minister of National Infrastructures, Energy, and Water Resources Karine Elharrar was not able to attend as she had muscle dystrophy and used a wheelchair.
