2 Israeli police killed in attack near Jerusalem holy site Temple Mount

I look at this from the perspective of the police getting shot such as the recent assassination of police officer in New York. 
But, the roots of this run much deeper.   

BBC reports two Israeli policemen have been killed and a third wounded in a shooting attack near a sacred site in Jerusalem.

They were shot by three Israeli Arabs close to the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary).

Police chased the attackers into the site and shot them dead.

There has been a wave of stabbings, shootings and car-rammings of Israelis predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since late 2015.
