At least three Israelis have been stabbed to death and a fourth was wounded in a knife attack in the occupied West Bank settlement of Neve Tsuf.
The Israeli army said in a statement on Friday that the four victims were Israeli civilians and that the assailant was also shot. It was not known whether he was killed or wounded.
Israel Radio identified the attacker as a 19-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank village of Khobar near Ramallah.
The attack came after a day of clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces over new security measures at al-Aqsa mosque compound – the third holiest site in Islam. Three Palestinians were killed and hundreds wounded in the clashes.
