UN Security Council denounces Jerusalem terror attack

"I think the most important thing we need to understand is that we are under a new kind of attack. There definitely could be a connection between them, from France to Berlin and now Jerusalem".

"Even (if) Sunday's attack was indeed inspired by ISIS, it still originated in Jerusalem and is part of the unending series of attacks the city has suffered over the past two-and-a-half years". Netanyahu ordered a closure of the neighborhood.

Israel's security cabinet announced the adoption of several counter-terrorism measures following the deadly attack in the capital. She added that Qanbar, a father of four, was devoutly religious. Salafism is split into peaceful and violent streams, with the latter promoting ideas that are close to those of IS.

After the attack, Netanyahu made a highly controversial claim that the driver was a militant with the self-declared "Islamic State" (IS) group.

The attack happened on a popular promenade in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The recent terror attack killed four soldiers, Yael Yekutiel, 20, Shir Hajaj, 22, Shira Tzur, 20, and Erez Orbach, 20. Police said three of the dead were women.

The ambulance service reportedly took 15 people injured in the incident to the hospital, some of whom were seriously injured. "That was really clear", Leah Schreiber, a witness, told reporters. "It comes within the context of the normal response to the crimes of the Israeli occupation".

"The Zionist regime is the source of the terrorism that has plagued the region and the reason behind all sufferings that has been inflicted on our Ummah (community)", Hezbollah said.

Israel claims the entire city as its capital.

The executive officials also gave Israeli security agencies permission to "administratively detain" a person who expresses support for the Islamic State (IS), as what Qunbar did. "It may be quiet, it may linger, but it will never end", he said.

Abbas said that doing so would mark a "red line that we don't accept".

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) has already warned the USA against moving its embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds, saying all American embassies in the Arab world would have to close in the face of popular Arab outrage that would follow such an action.

The White House condemned Sunday's attack. "We extend our honest condolences to the families of the victims and hope that those injured will make a full recovery".

Mohammed Qunbar, the attacker's cousin, said Fadi lived a normal life but carried out the attack as a result of Palestinian anger over Israeli encroachment at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site. In most of the incidents, Israeli soldiers or civilians have shot and killed or injured the Palestinian attackers.

He said the "key tension" driving these attacks was not the supposed presence of IS, but "the lack of any diplomatic prospect, ongoing frustration with the Palestinian Authority, anger toward Israel, and continued robust incitement on social media". On Tuesday, Netanyahu reiterated that claim, saying Israel had "solid information" that proved the USA was behind the drafting of the resolution.

Palestinians say it's the result of almost 50 years of Israeli occupation.

Palestinian leaders are considering whether to withdraw their recognition of Israel if the move goes through, he said. The [people] shot at the driver.
