An Israeli soldier was lightly wounded when a Palestinian Arab woman stabbed him at a checkpoint north of Jerusalem on Monday.
The woman approached the soldier as if to ask a question, and then quickly pulled out a knife and started stabbing.
Nearby soldiers were able to overpower the terrorist before further harm could be done.
A day earlier, a Palestinian Arab youth stabbed four people on the seaside promenade in Tel Aviv.
The 18-year-old assailant had been granted a one-day permit to Israel as part of a bilateral peace initiative.
