Yesterday, a 29-year-old American student was killed in a stabbing attack and ten others wounded, including a pregnant woman, as a terrorist stabbed passersby and motorists along the Tel Aviv beach promenade before being shot and killed by police.

The American tourist was identified as Taylor Force, a graduate student at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. His wife was seriously injured in the attack.

Earlier on Tuesday, two Israeli Border Police officers were wounded, one critically, when a terrorist on a motorcycle opened fire near Damascus Gate. The terrorist was shot and killed by police.

In a separate terror attack in Petah Tikva yesterday, one Israeli was stabbed and moderately wounded by a Palestinian terrorist. The victim removed the knife from his neck during the attack and killed his attacker with the same knife.

A stabbing attack was thwarted in the Old City of Jerusalem when a Palestinian woman approached Border Police officers, drew a knife from her back, and attempted to stab them. The would-be attacker was shot by police.

This morning, an Israeli was seriously wounded in Jerusalem when two terrorists carried out a car-ramming attack near a light rail stop by Damascus Gate. The terrorists were shot and killed by police.
