ANKARA (AA) - At least five people were killed in an armed attack on Friday night in a Jewish settlement in occupied East Jerusalem, according to local authorities.
On Twitter, Israel's national emergency medical service Magen David Adom said the five people were killed on the scene in an armed attack that took place in the Neve Ya'akov Jewish settlement.
It also said three wounded were transferred to the nearby Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.
Israel built the Neve Ya'akov settlement in 1967 in occupied East Jerusalem.
On Thursday, the Israeli army carried out a large-scale military offensive in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern occupied West Bank, which left nine people dead, dozens wounded, and caused damage to buildings and property.
