Palestinians send their children on Jew-stabbing rampages

Israeli medics carry a wounded Israeli following a stabbing attack in a light rail train in Jerusalem, Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015.
JERUSALEM (CP) - Two Palestinian boys, aged 11 and 14, stabbed and wounded an Israeli guard on a train who responded by firing and wounding one of them Tuesday. Meanwhile, Israeli security forces killed two other Palestinians who carried out knife attacks, police said, as violence returned to Jerusalem after a two-week lull.

The train attack was reminiscent of a similar case from October when two young Palestinian cousins stabbed two Israelis in east Jerusalem. That case became fodder for the ongoing war of words between the Palestinian and Israeli governments and the trial of one of the attackers began on Tuesday.

In the first attack Tuesday, police said two young Palestinian relatives stabbed a security guard on a train. The guard was moderately wounded and shot the younger assailant. Passengers subdued the other, police said. The wounded boy was being treated at a hospital.
