JERUSALEM – The latest developments in ongoing tensions between Palestinians and Israelis following days of violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank (all times local).
Israeli police say a suspect stabbed a soldier and tried to take his weapon in southern Israel before being shot dead by police.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the man attacked the soldier after getting off a bus in the city of Kiryat Gat. The man then fled into a residential building, where police forces tracked him down and shot him dead.
Rosenfeld said the suspect's identity was not yet clear but that police were treating the incident as a terror attack.
Wednesday's attack follows a series of tense days in which Palestinian attacks have killed several Israeli civilians. Earlier in the day, a Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli man who then shot and wounded her in Jerusalem's Old City.
