    Israeli soldiers stand guard at an intersection used by Israelis and Palestinians near the West Bank city of Nablus on October 30, 2015.

    Two Palestinians were shot in the West Bank, another assailant shot in Jerusalem, after they tried to stab border-police officers on what Hamas and Islamic Jihad bill a "Day of Rage." 

    Israeli police said the the two were armed with knives when they arrived at the Tapuch Junction in Nablus by motorcycles. One was killed and the other was wounded, according to police.

    Shortly after the attack at the West Bank checkpoint, another knife-wielding man stabbed an injured an American in Jerusalem. The attacker was shot and killed.
