Five wounded in Jaffa stabbing attack, as Biden visits

One person has been killed and 10 wounded in a stabbing spree by an Arab terrorist in Jaffa.

Five of the injured victims are in serious condition, four were moderately wounded, while the fifth sustained light injuries.

The attacker struck at three separate locations near the marina, before shot dead by police.

According to police, the terrorist first stabbed a number of people at the marina, before running to a nearby restaurant and stabbing at least four others.

The attack came as US Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Israel Tuesday evening, for the start of an official visit. Biden was in Jaffa at the time of the stabbing, as he was attending an event at the Peres Center for Peace.

It is the third attack in quick succession Tuesday, following a stabbing attack in nearby Petah Tikva, and a shooting attack in Jerusalem.

Earlier on Tuesday, two stabbing attacks were thwarted in the Jerusalem arua by alert police.
