Three killed in Jerusalem shooting hours after Gaza ceasefire renewed

KATHMANDU: Three people have been shot dead in Jerusalem after two attackers reportedly opened fire at a bus stop, at least six others have been injured – some of them critically.

It comes a day after two Palestinian boys, 8 and 14, were shot and killed during an Israeli army raid in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Separately, Israel has extended a temporary ceasefire in Gaza for a seventh day as international mediators try to negotiate the release of more hostages.

On Wednesday 12 Israeli and four Thai hostages held by Hamas arrived back in Israel.

In exchange, 30 Palestinian women and teenage boys were freed from Israeli jails

The Hamas attacks on Israel on 7 October killed 1,200 people with around 240 others taken hostage.

Since then, Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry says more than 14,800 people have been killed in Israel’s retaliatory campaign, including about 6,000 children.
