Palestinians stab Israelis
04 Oct 2015 16:04
A Palestinian man stabbed and wounded an Israeli teenager in Jerusalem today, just hours after another knife-wielding attacker killed an off-duty Israeli soldier and a rabbi nearby in the walled Old City, police said.
Officers shot dead both attackers, a police spokesman said, and Israel's government announced it was barring Palestinians from entering the ancient district for two days, apart from people who lived there.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office said he would meet security chiefs later today to discuss more action to tackle a rising wave of violence in East Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, and the West Bank, areas that Israel captured in a 1967 war.
The bloodshed, which included a drive-by shooting that killed an Israeli couple in the West Bank on Thursday and an arson attack that killed a Palestinian toddler and his parents in July, has triggered concerns of wider escalation.
Israel's best-selling newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, published a banner front page headline reading "The third Intifada", though the violence has not reached the levels of past Palestinian intifadas or uprisings.
