Israeli police: Palestinian attacker stabs 2 in West Bank supermarket before guard shoots him

Israeli police say a Palestinian has stabbed two people in a supermarket in the West Bank before a private security guard shot him.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says Wednesday's attack took place in Mishor Adumim, east of Jerusalem. She said a 16-year-old Palestinian entered the supermarket and stabbed two Israeli shoppers. Samri says they were moderately wounded.

She says the security guard then shot the attacker. His condition was unknown.

Over the past month, 11 people have been killed in Palestinian attacks, including a deadly assault on a Jerusalem synagogue that killed five people. Most of the violence has occurred in Jerusalem, though there have been other attacks in Tel Aviv and the West Bank.
