    Over a dozen Israelis have been wounded and one has died in a spate of stabbings around the country today, including one attack in which the victim reportedly pulled a knife out of his own neck and used it to stab his attacker.

    In the attack in Petah Tikva, a man drew a knife on a shopper in an off-licence and stabbed him. The victim and the shop owner managed to overpower the assailant, took the knife – which was already partially embedded in the shopper’s neck - and stabbed him to death.

    Two Israeli police officers were wounded in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, with one in a critical condition.

    According to police reports, the assailant fired shots at police officers, wounding one seriously and wounding a second officer while fleeing. The suspect shooter, identified as Fouad Tamimi, 25, from Issawiya in East Jerusalem, was shot dead.

    In a third attack, ten people were wounded and one died following attacks in three different locations around Jaffa: the promenade, Nahum Goldmann Street, and the Clock Square.

    According to Tel Aviv police, the attacker began stabbing people at the entrance to Jaffa Port before moving up the boardwalk, wounding three more people before being shot by police.
