Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said two of the Israelis were moderately wounded in the attack, the latest in nearly two months of violence across the region.

Later, the Israeli military said a Palestinian woman stabbed a security guard at the entrance to a West Bank settlement. The guard was lightly wounded and shot the woman, wounding her.

Since mid-September, 11 Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks, most of them stabbings, while 74 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 47 who Israel said were involved in attacks or attempted attacks. The other 27 Palestinians were killed in clashes between stone-throwers and security forces.
