A Jordanian national was shot dead after he tried to stab police officers in Jerusalem and two Palestinians rammed their vehicle into a bus stop in the West Bank, wounding three Israeli civilians before they were shot, Israeli police and military said Friday.

In the first incident, a man came out of Jerusalem’s walled Old City brandishing a knife in each hand, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said. He then waved the knives in the air and shouted “Allahu akbar” as he rushed at the officers. They opened fire and killed him, Samri said. The man had both a Jordanian and a Palestinian ID on his body, she said.
