Authorities are searching for the suspect in the stabbing. Another stabbing attack was thwarted Sunday when IDF soldiers apprehended three Palestinians at the Mishor Adumim checkpoint in Judea and Samaria, reported Yedioth Ahronoth.

The Qassam rocket’s shards were found near a bus stop frequently used by school children. On Sunday, bus passengers were also evacuated in the city of Bat Yam after a suspicious packaged was discovered. The packaged was later found to contain a bomb. No one was injured.
