Several people have been injured Thursday in what Israeli police are calling a “severe terrorist attack” at a Jewish seminary school in Jerusalem.
The Associated Press reported at least seven people died in an attack by two people. One shooter was dead, the police spokesman told CNN but he did not confirm fatalities.
Police and ambulances are still at the scene.
A Palestinian terrorist opened fire at a central Jerusalem yeshiva late Thursday night, killing eight students and wounding 11 others, police and rescue officials said.
The exact number of people killed was yet to be confirmed, but Magen David Adom said that two terrorists were dead. Police were said to be chasing a third terrorist and were closing off the area.

THE Palestinian Hamas movement hailed a deadly attack on a Jewish religious school in Jerusalem tonight as “heroic,” without claiming responsibility for the strike that killed eight people.
This heroic attack in Jerusalem is a normal response to the crimes of the occupier and its murder of civilians,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.

Meanwhile, the Dreck Peddlers from CNN Continue to Appeal to Bleeding Hearts:
Palestinians form a line in January at a Gaza City bakery, one of few that hadn’t closed for lack of fuel.
GAZA (CNN) — Food and jobs are scarce, schools are floundering, hospitals are without electricity and sewage flows freely to the sea.
So said a Thursday report from eight human rights agencies, which say conditions in Gaza are worse today than at any point since the Israeli military began occupying the territory three decades ago.
“The current situation in Gaza is man-made, completely avoidable and, with the necessary political will, can be reversed,” it said.
Israel denounced the 16-page report, saying it is merely defending itself and calling the notion of a humanitarian crisis “fabricated.”
However, Geoffrey Dennis, chief executive of Care International UK, one of the groups behind the report, said the crisis exists. Innocent people are suffering and dying, he said. Read the full report
“It’s unacceptable and that’s why we’re raising the issue,” he said. “It can’t get much worse.”
The report blasts Israel’s blockade of Gaza, saying that by slashing shipments of supplies and forbidding Palestinians to leave for work or healthcare, the Jewish state is imposing hardships on the 1.5 million Palestinians residing in the ravaged territory.
“Gaza has suffered from a long-term pattern of economic stagnation and plummeting development indicators,” according to the report. “The severity of the situation has increased exponentially since Israel imposed extreme restrictions on the movement of goods and people in response to the Hamas takeover of Gaza and to indiscriminate rocket attacks against Israel.”
Obviously it doesn’t occour to these ‘human rights’ freaks that shooting rockets into Israel might have something to do with it.
