According to the Shin Bet security agency, the two Palestinian terrorists who carried out the shooting attack at the entrance to Jerusalem are Hamas members, and were previously jailed for terror activity.

They are named as brothers Murad Nemer, 38, and Ibrahim Nemer, 30, from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher.

Murad was jailed from 2010 to 2020 for planning terror attacks under the direction of terror elements in the Gaza Strip, according to the Shin Bet.

Ibrahim was jailed in 2014 for undisclosed terror activity, the agency says.
