Israelis return to attacked Jerusalem synagogue
JERUSALEM, Israel - 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."
