Jerusalem: Jewish worshippers are returning to a Jerusalem synagogue that was the site of a deadly attack the previous day as Palestinians brace for more punitive demolitions amid soaring Israeli-Palestinian tensions.

Meanwhile, Israeli security forces early on Wednesday demolished the home of the Palestinian who killed two people in October in an attack on commuters at a crowded light rail platform in Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said Israel would take strict measures to deal with a rising wave of Palestinian attacks.

At the synagogue in the west Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Nof—attacked on Tuesday by two Palestinian cousins wielding meat cleavers, knives and a handgun—people sought comfort in prayer.

Gavriel Cohen says the attack showed “that our future in this world is dependent on God.”
