An Israeli man stabbed three Palestinians  and one Bedouin in the southern Israeli city of Dimona Friday morning. Police have arrested the Jewish suspect, a 24 year old resident of the city.


In a press statement released this afternoon, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the Dimona attack and stated that "Israel is a country of law and order. Those who use violence and break the law – from whatever side – will be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.”

 

At approximately midday, an Israeli teenager was lightly wounded in a knife attack on Shaul Hanavi street in Jerusalem. The suspect was arrested on the scene.

 

Israel Police Foreign Press Spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, described the event as a “confirmed terror attack.”

 

Soon after the attack in Jerusalem, a Jewish Israeli policeman was stabbed by a Palestinian at the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, on the outskirts of Hebron.

 

The suspect, identified as Muhammad Fares Abdullah al-Jaabari, 19, was shot and killed by police on the scene.

 

Approximately one hour later, a Palestinian woman was shot after allegedly attempting to stab a security guard at the central bus station in Afula, northern Israel.

 

A video eleased of the incident shows the woman standing in the bus station surrounded by Israeli soldiers.  

 

 

 

She is holding an object in her hand, but does not appear to pose a threat to the soldiers. She then falls to the ground after being shot at multiple times. Ma’an News Agency reports that the woman is seriously injured.

 

The four attacks are the latest in a recent spate of knife attacks across Israel and the West Bank. There has now been a total of 13 knife attacks carried out in the region in the past week.
