The assailant reportedly died during an exchange of fire.
On Monday evening, Israeli security forces arrested an Arab woman after she tried to stab a police officer in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The incident occurred near the Lions’ Gate entrance to the Temple Mount holy site.
Officers disarmed the woman without using gunfire, according to a police statement, which added that no injuries were reported.
Israel has experienced several deadly attacks in recent weeks, including the killing of an off-duty IDF soldier on Aug. 31 when a Palestinian drove his truck into a crowd at the Maccabim Crossing along Route 443, close to the central city of Modi’in. Six other persons were wounded in the ramming.
Also in August, 40-year-old Batsheva Nigri, a mother of three from Beit Hagai, was killed and a 39-year-old man was seriously wounded in a terrorist shooting near Hebron in Judea.
Two days earlier, a Palestinian terrorist shot and killed Shay Silas Nigrekar, 60, and his 28-year-old son Aviad Nir in Huwara, just outside Nablus (Shechem) in Samaria.
