An Israeli security guard was lightly wounded in a stabbing attack in Beitar Illit, hours after four were wounded in a car-ramming attack at Tapuach Junction.

The female assailant in the attack approached the guard at the gate of the Beitar Illit settlement in the West Bank.

After engaging in a conversation for a short period, she reached into her handbag and drew a knife.

The attacker lunged at the guard, stabbed and lightly wounded him, before he managed to shoot the assailant. Despite conflicting reports that she was shot fatally, according to Times of Israel, she was still being treated.

The attacker in the car-ramming attack was shot and killed.
