In today's Daily Dispatch we told you of an attempted terror attack at the Holy City's Damascus Gate, and a bit ago we reported on a car-ramming attack on a West Bank bus stop. Now, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross writes about what is already today's fourth terror attack in the Holy Land - the knifing of an IDF soldier in Hebron:

An Israeli soldier was lightly wounded in a stabbing attack at a checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron on Friday, according to officials.

The assailant was shot and killed by forces at the Gilbert checkpoint near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of the city, the army said.

The 19-year-old soldier had his face slashed in the attack, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said.

He received treatment on the scene from both MDA paramedics and an army medical unit, before he was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for further care, according to the ambulance service.

This was the fourth terror-related incident of the day, and the second in the Hebron area. Earlier on Friday, a Jordanian national was shot and killed as he attempted to stab a Border Police officer at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem.

Less than an hour later, a soldier shot and killed a Palestinian man and seriously wounded a Palestinian woman who allegedly carried out a car-ramming attack outside the Kiryat Arba settlement next to Hebron.

On Friday afternoon, a bus driver was also lightly wounded when unidentified perpetrators threw rocks and glass bottles full of paint at his vehicle on the highway between Jerusalem and the Ma’ale Adumim settlement...
