Israel vows to defeat ‘knife terror’ after new attacks

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Monday that Israel would not bow to “knife terror” while four stabbings in Jerusalem gave no sign of Palestinian unrest slowing. Frustrated Palestinian youths have defied president Mahmud Abbas as well as an Israeli crackdown by staging violent protests in annexed east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, while 18 stabbings have targeted Jews since October 3. There have been warnings of the risk of a full-blown uprising, or Palestinian intifada.
