JERUSALEM — Israeli authorities barred most Palestinians from entering Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday except to worship at the Al Aqsa Mosque, where men under 50 were also not allowed. It was a rare crackdown following the previous night’s fatal stabbing of two ultra-Orthodox men, the second deadly attack by Palestinians against Israeli families in three days.

Hours after the stabbing, Israeli police early Sunday shot and killed a 21-year-old Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem who they said had stabbed a 15-year-old Jewish boy on the road outside the Old City.
