One police officer arrived at the place and shot both attackers dead.
According to Channel 10 News, both attackers worked at a nearby grocery store.
The synagogue is frequented by residents associated with the Sephardi-Haredi Shas party.
Israeli media identified the attackers as Ghassan Abu Jamal and his cousin Udayy from Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood of East Jerusalem.
Channel 1 reported that the two attackers were affiliated to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
A Hamas spokesman this morning called the attack “heroic, ” saying it was an act of revenge for the “execution” of Palestinian Egged bus driver Yusuf Hasan al-Ramouni, 32. According to the autopsy results, al-Ramouni’s hanging, inside his bus, on Monday, was ruled a suicide.
