The violence comes as Israel has begun deploying hundreds of troops in a bid to counter a wave of attacks.

Wednesday's incident brings the Palestinian death toll since the start of the current wave of violence to 30, among them 13 identified by Israel as attackers with the others killed in clashes. Eight Israelis have been killed in attacks by Palestinians.
