Two knife attacks within hours of each other have left a woman and a soldier dead and two other Israelis injured.

The young woman was attacked along with two others outside a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. The attacker, reported to be a Palestinian, was shot by a security guard.

He’s been taken to hospital with serious injuries.

In the other incident, an Israeli soldier was stabbed and mortally wounded in Tel Aviv.

Police say a Palestinian has been arrested.

He’s reported to be from Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

The stabbings come just days after the third incident of a vehicle being used to ram pedestrians in Israel.

A policeman, a woman and a baby died in those attacks.

The Palestinian driver in the latest ramming incident in Jerusalem was shot dead by police.
