Immediately after the incident, Israel shut down the compound, saying that security forces need to check the site for more militants or ammunition.

She said a knife, a gun and two rifles were found on the terrorists' bodies.

Israeli restrictions on Muslim entry have prompted rioting in Palestinian areas, and previous Israeli efforts taken in response to violence at the site have strained relations with Jordan.

"I can confirm that the two police officers who were previously in critical condition have died of their wounds in [the] hospital", Rosenfeld told CNN.

Dramatic mobile phone footage, which has been circulated widely on social media, shows several Israeli police chasing a man and then shooting him dead inside the compound.

The temple was closed for the first time in almost 50 years on a Friday, Islam's holy day.

In a condolence statement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "This is a sad day for our brothers in the Druze community who are paying the heaviest price in our shared duty to defend the security of Israel".

Ramallah- Israel on Sunday partly reopened Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque gates but placed strict security measures at the entrances of the compound, including metal detectors to search worshipers.

For the first time in a while, Jews were permitted on the Temple Mount without being escorted by someone from the Wakf, the Islamic trust that administers the day-to-day activities there. The United States strongly condemns the terror attack.

Police identified the slain officers as Hayil Satawi, 30, from the northern Israeli Arab town of Maghar, and Kamil Shnaan, 22, from another northern town, Hurfeish. Two Israeli officers were killed in the attack, with a third injured.

About 600 Muslims had entered the temple from when it opened at 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. - far fewer than the thousands that usually visit the mosque.

Abbas Zaki, of the central committee of al-Fatah, said Israel was morally responsible for the Jerusalem attack.

Hundreds of Palestinians gathered at Lions' Gate, one of the gates that lead to Al-Aqsa Mosque, to pray the five prayers and express their rejection of the new police measures.
