An Israeli soldier has been killed in a gun and knife attack at a bus station in Beersheba, southern Israel. Police said the attacker, thought to be Palestinian, was killed. An Eritrean bystander, mistaken as an accomplice, was shot and beaten, and later died. Eight Israelis have died in Palestinian attacks this month. More than 40 Palestinians, including several attackers, have been killed. The upsurge began amid tensions at a flashpoint holy site in East Jerusalem. Israeli security forces have imposed tighter restrictions in Jerusalem and the West Bank, and there have been clashes with Palestinian protesters.
