Israel says 2 men are dead after opening fire on police near Damascus Gate

Jerusalem (CNN)Two men who opened fire at Israeli security forces outside the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem's Old City were shot and killed late Sunday, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

No police or soldiers were injured.
Authorities have not yet identified the alleged attackers, referring to them only as "terrorists."
Earlier this month, an Israeli border police officer died of injuries she sustained in an attack outside the Damascus Gate.
Police shot and killed three Palestinians in that attack, Rosenfeld said.
Israel has experienced a spate of violence since October.
