Israel: 'We Will Respond with a Heavy Hand' After 4 Killed in Synagogue Attack

The four men killed in Tuesday's synagogue attack in Jerusalem were, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld: Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky, 43; Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, 58; Rabbi Calman Levine; and Rabbi Moshe Twersky, 59.

Three of the men killed in the attack were dual Israeli-U.S. citizens, and the fourth was a dual British-Israeli citizen, according to Rosenfeld. The FBI will investigate because of three of the victims were U.S. citizens, a U.S. law enforcement official said.
