Israeli security forces thwarted a shooting attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Monday.

Police said a terrorist opened fire at officers near the Temple Mount’s Bab Huta Gate. He was chased on foot by police and border police, and eventually shot dead by security forces.

Police were searching for a possible second suspect in the area, reported Ynet. One officer fell and was lightly injured.

Earlier on Monday, a mother of six from the settlement of Tal Menashe in Samaria was found dead at 2 a.m. in the morning in a forest near her home, according to police.
