The latest developments in a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence (all times local).

8:25 p.m.

Israeli police say two Arab attackers have been shot after they stabbed an Israeli man.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the attackers were seriously wounded in the attack in the city of Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem. The Israeli was lightly wounded. It was not immediately clear who shot the attackers.

Thursday's incident was the latest in a monthlong wave of violence that has gripped the region. Ten Israelis have been killed in stabbing attacks, while 47 Palestinians or Arab citizens of Israel have been killed, including 26 identified by Israel as attackers.

Diplomatic efforts are underway to try to bring an end to the violence. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Berlin later Thursday.
