JERUSALEM (TheBlaze/AP) – Israeli police say an Israeli woman has been stabbed in an attack outside Jerusalem's main bus station.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says the attacker stabbed the 70-year-old woman Wednesday and then attempted to board a bus before he was shot by forces at the scene. Samri says the woman was moderately wounded. The attacker's identity and condition were not immediately known.

The attack came just hours after Israeli police foiled a separate would-be attack outside Jerusalem's Old City at the Damascus Gate. The assailant was killed after allegedly trying to stab a security officer.

The violence comes as Israel has begun carrying out a series of steps meant to rein in a spate of attacks by Palestinians, including deploying hundreds of soldiers in Israeli cities.
