Guns N Roses have canceled a visit to Jerusalem in the wake a terror attack at the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif complex.

The Guardian reports that "three Israeli citizens of Palestinian origin" were involved in a shootout with police at the entrance to the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif complex. All three gunmen were killed in the attack, along with two Israeli police officers. Temple Mount was closed for what Israeli president Benjamin Netanyahu referred to as "security reasons" following the attack.

"When they saw policemen they shot towards them and then escaped towards one of the mosques in the Temple Mount compound," a police spokesperson told the press. "A chase ensued and the three terrorists were killed by police."

GNR is scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv on Saturday and were planning a trip to Jerusalem ahead of the show.
