A Palestinian gunman from the Islamist group Hamas killed an Israeli and wounded three other people in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday before being shot dead by police, officials said.

The incident was the second attack in Jerusalem in four days.

Hamas identified the gunman as one of its leaders in eastern Jerusalem.

Britain on Friday banned Hamas, bringing London’s stance in line with the United States and the European Union.
