There were two more murders that took place today
Two stabbing attacks have been launched on Israelis, killing a young woman and gravely wounding a soldier.
The woman was killed at a bus stop in the West Bank and the Israeli soldier injured in Tel Aviv, with the attacks the latest in an ongoing wave of Arab violence that has put the country on edge.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised a harsh response, saying he will use all means available and consider even tougher steps to stop the unrest.
In a veiled threat to Arab demonstrators in Israel and east Jerusalem, he said attackers should consider moving to the West Bank or Gaza Strip. "Believe me, we will put no difficulties in your path," he said.
Mr Netanyahu spoke after the soldier was stabbed at a crowded train station by a suspected Palestinian assailant in Tel Aviv, but before the deadly attack outside the West Bank settlement of Alon Shvut.
Police said the assailant there stepped out of a car at a bus stop in front of the settlement, then stabbed three people before he was shot by a security guard.
Police said a woman in her mid-20s was killed, while two other people were wounded. The attacker was in serious condition.
In the Tel Aviv attack, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the suspect was from the West Bank city of Nablus, travelling in Israel without a permit and was held immediately after the stabbing.
"He is presently under interrogation," he said.
Those who call themselves "palestinians" and wish nothing but ill to Jews would do well to move away, not just from Jerusalem but from the country in its entirety. They should go to Saudi Arabia for all we care. That's the kind of environment they want, so they might as well start packing and go off to that cesspool.
