JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday detained 12 relatives of two Palestinian men who had earlier attacked a Jerusalem synagogue killing four Israelis.

Ghassan Abu Jamal and his cousin Udayy, from the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood of East Jerusalem, entered a synagogue armed with a gun, axes, and knives and killed four Israeli worshipers.

Both men were shot dead by Israeli forces at the scene of the incident.

The family of the men said Israeli forces raided their homes following the attack and detained 12 family members, including Abu Jamal's wife, mother, and brothers Munther, Jamal, Imade, Murad, and Muawiya.

The brother of Udayy, Mutaza, was also detained.

At least 17 Palestinians suffered tear gas inhalation and five were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes following the arrests.

Israeli forces sealed the entrance to the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood with cement blocks.
