Nine other worshippers have been injured, including five who are critically wounded. The attack took place at the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue located in a religious study hall in the Har Nof neighbourhood in west Jerusalem.
Cousins, Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group, unleashed an attack on worshippers, armed with guns and knives, shouting 'Allahu Akbar', The Times of Israel  reported, citing witnesses. Two police officers then shot down the militants in an exchange of fire.
"We are viewing this as a terrorist attack," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld was quoted saying by The Jerusalem Post. The incident has added to rising tensions as several attacks have been reported in Israel in the last few weeks.

Head of the 'Torat Moshe' Kollel (academy for advanced Torah study), Rabbi Moshe Twersky has been named as one of the four who was killed in this morning's terror attack at the Kehillat Bnai Torah Yeshiva Synagogue in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood. The rabbi's funeral will take place at 2:00 p.m., starting from the Beit HaTalmud Yeshiva to the Har Hamenuhot cemetery.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded to this morning's terror attack in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood saying, "This morning's murderous attack is a direct incitement at the hands of Hamas and (Mahmoud) Abbas, an incitement which has been continuously and irresponsibly ignored by the international community."

Netanyahu, who is due to enter a consultation on the security situation this afternoon, added, "We will respond harshly to the brutal murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by vile murderers". (Arutz Sheva) 

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) responded to this morning's Jerusalem terror attack, blaming incitement by Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas for the deadliest attack in the capital in years.
'Mahmoud Abbas incited this terror,'- Israeli Min Avigdor Lieberman

"An attack which is perpetrated in a synagogue during prayers is the biggest indicator that for all of these despicable acts of murder by terrorists, the responsibility lies entirely with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas," Liberman said in a Facebook post.

"Abbas has deliberately turned the conflict into a religious one between Jews and Muslims, and the systematic campaign that he leads against against Jews - including his definition of who isn't pure and should not be allowed go on the Temple Mount, is instructing these attacks," he continued, directly referring to comments Abbas has made about Jews visiting the Temple Mount and in which he called Muslims to use "all means necessary" to prevent them from doing so.

"It is incumbent upon the international community to condemn Abbas's anti-Semitic remarks, which lead to massacres such as what has taken place this morning, and to clarify to him that someone who leads in this way cannot be a legitimate political leader."

Muslims on Twitter began celebrating or justifying the atrocity:

CNN International whitewashed the victimizing of Jewish innocents by Palestinian terrorists by entitling the story "Police: Four Israelis, 2 Palestinians killed in attack." Attack by whom? The Palestinians were killed by Israeli police in order to stop the Palestinians' attack. It was reported that the attackers were hacking the Jewish worshippers even after they had shot the the Jews dead.
