Alleged Palestinian assailants carried out two knife attacks in Jerusalem on Tuesday, police said, as a wave of unrest in Israel and the Palestinian territories returned to the city after a lull.
In one incident, a Palestinian carried out a knife attack at the Damascus Gate, the main entrance to Jerusalem's Old City, and was "neutralised", police said.
In the other, two knife-wielding Palestinian boys aged 12 to 13 attacked a security guard in a settler neighbourhood of annexed east Jerusalem, with one shot and wounded and the other arrested, police said. The security guard was wounded and treated at the scene, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
While other knife and car-ramming attacks have continued in the occupied West Bank amid a weeks-long surge of violence, Tuesday's attacks were the first in Jerusalem in more than a week.
