Jerusalem: Four people were reportedly killed in an apparent terror attack at a synagogue in the Har Nof neighbourhood of Jerusalem Tuesday morning, a media report said.

A Magen David Adom spokesman said that there were at least 13 victims, some of whom are gravely injured, Xinhua reported citing Israeli media.

"We are viewing this as a terrorist attack," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

Two Palestinians, armed with axes and knives, entered the synagogue and began attacking worshippers. Both attackers were shot and killed, Channel 2 reported.

The ultra-Orthodox Har Nof neighbourhood is on the western edge of Jerusalem city.
