In addition, police forces launched searches at the house of another terrorist who shot and wounded two Border Police officers in an attack in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Palestinian reports, the terrorist who killed an American tourist and wounded 12 in the stabbing spree in Jaffa was identified as Bashar Massalha, 22, from a village in the Kalkiliya area. The reports noted that Massalha had returned from a visit to Saudi Arabia's Mecca the week before.

The terrorist in the Petah Tikva stabbing that left one Israeli wounded was said to be Abed al-Rahman Radad, a 17-year-old resident of the northern West Bank town of Zawiya.
