While the volatile east Jerusalem entrance has been heavily secured following Friday's coordinated attacks, and visitation by Muslim's to the Temple Mount have not been limited, Rosenfeld said on Sunday morning that two Arab suspects were arrested for attacking police.
Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip, dismissed the IS claim, saying the attackers had come from among its own ranks and those of the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
A Palestinian from the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron, initially thought to be a fourth assailant and was shot and wounded, turned out to be an innocent passerby, Israeli police said.
"It was a local cell", Ms Simri said. Israel blames the violence on incitement by the Palestinian leadership.
ISIS claimed the attack shortly after it occurred, but Hamas rejected it Saturday.
On Saturday, Israeli police rounded up over 350 Palestinians in Jerusalem in a mass crackdown on undocumented workers, a police spokesman said. "The female officer was stabbed multiple times and in critical condition before being rushed to the hospital, where unfortunately, she died of her wounds a short while afterwards".
Following the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chose to cancel permission for Palestinians to visit family members in Jerusalem and Israel, officer said.
The Shin Bet internal security agency identified the three perpetrators as Braa Salah, born in 1998, Adel Ankush, born in 1999, and Asama Atta, born in 1998.
During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Israeli restrictions have been eased for Palestinians from the West Bank to travel to Jerusalem.

Fuel for the small plant ran out two months ago, and a resumption of operations could give Gazans power for eight hours a day, about twice what they have now.
A gun used by one of the attackers reportedly jammed.
According to the police, two Palestinian bystanders were wounded in the shootout, one moderately and one lightly. However, there have been a string of recent attacks near the Old City.
Large numbers of heavily armed security forces were patrolling throughout the Old City, an AFP reporter said.
Instead, an obscure Palestinian group known as the "Groups of Martyr Baha Eleyan" claimed responsibility.
Friday's assault is the first ISIS-claimed attack on Israeli soil that has resulted in injuries or deaths.
Fatah, the political party of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, condemned Israel for killing the attackers, calling it a "war crime".
Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel have increased since 2015, although the pace of the once daily attacks had slowed lately.
Meanwhile nearby, Palestinians fired at officers with an automatic weapon and attacked them with knives before officers returned fire, killing them.
