Israelis stabbed in three attacks as tensions escalate

October 7, 2015 6:25 pm

Israelis have been targeted in a series of stabbing attacks by Palestinians, Israeli police say, amid escalating tensions in the region.

A Palestinian man was shot dead by police after attacking a soldier, after a Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli man who then shot her, police said.

Later, an Israeli man was stabbed by a Palestinian man, police said.

Dozens of Palestinians were also reportedly hurt in clashes with Israeli security forces in the West Bank.

The violence has prompted the Israeli prime minister to delay a visit to Germany. Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Thursday, but his office said he wanted to stay to “closely monitor the situation”.
