New Terror Wave in Israel: Where Did Attacks Occur

The latest incident, the ninth in five days, follows a bloody morning in Jerusalem's Old City.

The recent surge in terror attacks continued on Tuesday, as a ninth incident in four days took place in the morning in the Hebron area.
A Palestinian attempted to stab an Israeli soldier outside the Palestinian town of Bani Naim, the military said. The suspected attacker was shot and killed without any casualties among the soldiers.
On Monday evening, a Palestinian tried to stab a soldier in the Abu Sanina neighborhood in Hebron, but was restrained without any casualties.
Earlier, Two Palestinians were shot after allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. No soldiers were wounded in the incident.
Earlier on Monday, two police officers were taken to hospital in serious and moderate condition after being stabbed near Herod's Gate in Jerusalem's Old City. The alleged assailant was shot and hospitalized.
Israeli security officials fear a surge of attacks in the West Bank and East Jerusalem ahead of the Jewish High Holy Days. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday that the potential for violence could rise as the Jewish High Holy Days approach.
"The security forces are on heightened alert and I will meet with them today in order to ensure that we will be ready to defend our people during this sensitive period," he said at the weekly cabinet meeting.
On Sunday, an IDF officer was stabbed and moderately wounded near the West Bank settlement of Efrat. The alleged Palestinian assailant was shot and wounded.

Also on Friday, two Palestinians, a man and a woman, were shot by Israeli soldiers after apparently attempting to run over people standing at a bus stop outside the nearby settlement of Kiryat Arba.
On Friday afternoon, a Jordanian was shot after allegedly trying to stab Israeli Border Police officers in Jerusalem. The man, later identified as Said Amro, a resident of Jordan in his 20s, was killed in the incident.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
