Police say a Palestinian attacker has stabbed two people in Jerusalem, lightly injuring them.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says Saturday morning's attack took place in the central part of the city and police forces killed the attacker.

It's the latest incident in a wave of Palestinian stabbing attacks against civilians and soldiers in Israel and the West Bank over the past week.

The attacks started in Jerusalem over what Israel says are unfounded Palestinian rumors that Israel was expanding its presence at a sensitive holy site sacred to both Muslims And Jews. They have since spread to the rest on the country.

On Friday, for the first time since the current violence began, clashes broke out along the Gaza border. Palestinians there burned tires and threw rocks at Israeli troops on the frontier. Seven Palestinians were killed.
