Three separate terror attacks were reported across Israel Monday morning, hours after the end of the Rosh Hashana holiday.

The first incident, a stabbing attack, was foiled in Jerusalem Monday morning.

The incident occurred at the Mazmoria checkpoint in the Har Homa neighborhood of southern Jerusalem, just north of the Gush Etzion district, when a Palestinian Arab terrorist drew a knife and ran towards a group of Border Police officers stationed at the checkpoint.

The Border Police officers spotted the terrorist approaching while brandishing the knife and opened fire, neutralizing him. No Israelis were wounded in the incident.

A statement by the Israel Police did not provide details on the terrorist’s condition.

“A suspect who approached the Mazmoria checkpoint along the barrier in the Jerusalem envelope area east of Sur Baher pulled out a knife against Border Police officers,” a police spokesperson said.

“A Border Police officer spotted the suspect and opened fire and neutralized him. None of our personnel were harmed.”

According to a report by the Palestinian Authority’s WAFA outlet, the terrorist was not fatally wounded.

Hours later Monday morning, Palestinian terrorists operating in the town of Dayr Sharaf in Samaria opened fire on an IDF post.

While the army post was struck by gunfire, no Israeli security personnel were wounded in the attack.

In the afternoon, a third attack was reported just outside of Kibbutz Meirav, near the Green Line separating Samaria and the Galilee.

During the Kibbutz Meirav attack, an army vehicle was hit by gunfire during a patrol of the border.

No soldiers were wounded, and the army has launched a manhunt for the terrorists responsible.

On Friday, Israeli security personnel foiled a terrorist bombing attack in Tel Aviv and apprehended three suspects believed to be responsible for the attempted attack.
