RNA - According to media reports, the shootings took place on Sunday near the Israeli police headquarters close to the line dividing East Jerusalem al-Quds and the western sector of the occupied city.


Israeli media said that the attacker fired at Israeli forces after approaching the headquarters in a car. 


Two Israelis reportedly died and several others were injured in the attack.


Israeli police said the alleged attacker fled, but was pursued and shot dead by police.


The incident comes at a time of heightened tensions between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters. 


In recent months, the Tel Aviv regime forces have shot dead a large number of Palestinians after accusing them of carrying out attacks against Israelis across the occupied territories.


The occupied territories have been the scene of heightened tensions since August 2015, when the Tel Aviv regime imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds.


Almost 250 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in what is regarded as the third Palestinian Intifada since October 2015.
