Two Security Officers and a Border Policeman were murdered Tuesday morning in a suspected terror attack in the town of Har Adar outside Jerusalem. Another Israeli was badly wounded. 

According to the Border Police, the Palestinian assailant approached the town's gate posing as a laborer. When the officers manning the gate grew suspicious of him because of his unusual clothing, he pulled out his weapon and opened fire.  After an exchange of gunfire, the assailant was shot dead, but not before fatally injuring three people and severely wounding one more.

The injured Israeli, the town's Security Chief, was rushed to hospital for treatment.  One of the killed was Border Police Officer, First Sergeant Salomon Gabaria (20) from Beer Yaakov and the other two were private Security Guards. Their names are still under a gag order.

The village from which the attacker came from, located about a kilometer away from Har Adar has been placed under a military closure.
