Here are three more terror attacks to report over yesterday and this morning.
Israeli man seriously injured after being stabbed by Palestinian man, security guard lightly injured when apprehending attacker
A Jerusalem yeshiva student, 25, was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in northern Jerusalem.
A second Israeli, apparently a light rail security guard, was very lightly hurt after wrestling with the attacker in an attempt to prevent him from fleeing the scene.
Police say the attacker, a 19-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem, was “neutralized” within minutes. He is unharmed and was being questioned by police. Initial reports, corrected by police, said he was 15.
The terror attack took place just after noon at the light rail stop near the Israel Police’s national headquarters close to Ammunition Hill.
The victim, an Israeli citizen, was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem with the knife still lodged in his neck. Doctors rushed him into emergency surgery.

Israeli man stabbed in Petah Tikva, terrorist apprehended by bystanders
An Israeli man was stabbed and badly wounded in Petah Tikva in the first stabbing attack in the Gush Dan area since the recent wave of violence began.
The Shin Bet said 25-yearold Tamer Yunes Ahmed Varidat, a resident of Dahariya in the West Bank, got off a bus and stabbed a 25-yearold Israeli man before he was apprehended by bystanders.
Varidat had no prior arrests or security record, the Shin Bet said. He was taken into custody for questioning by security authorities.
The Israeli victim suffered moderate injuries and was taken to the nearby Rabin Medical Center – Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva for treatment.
Palestinian driver rammed car into security checkpoint, injuring himself and a security officer
Two people were lightly injured after a Palestinian driver rammed his car into a West Bank checkpoint east of Jerusalem Wednesday night, the latest in a series of attacks throughout the day.
The driver was shot by a border policeman and injured during the incident at the A’zaim checkpoint, between the Ma’ale Adumim settlement and Jerusalem, police said.
A spokesman from the Magen David Adom rescue service said the two people were lightly injured and taken to a Jerusalem hospital for treatment.
A statement from the police said the car was driven by a Palestinian and was coming from the West Bank when it ran into checkpoint.
“A car traveling from the direction of Ma’ale Adumim attempted to break through the barricade at the A’zaim checkpoint and run over a police office. The Border Police officer that was in immediate danger fired at the terrorist and injured him,” the statement read.
