Three were killed in separate Jerusalem attacks and there were stabbings in Ra'anana and Kiryat Ata.

The terror attacks in Israel have been intensifying with three Israelis killed on Tuesday morning and 20 more injured.

Two Arab terrorists boarded bus line 78 in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood and opened fire with a gun and began stabbing passengers. A 60 year old man was killed and 12 others injured before the assailants were overcome. One of the terrorists reportedly died later in Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital while the other is injured.

Shortly afterwards in Malchei Yisrael St. in Jerusalem's Geula quarter, an Arab employee of Bezeq rammed his van into a crowd at a bus stop killing two people and injuring another. The terrorist then exited his vehicle and attempted to stab passersby before he was overpowered.

The first attack of this morning was in Ra'anana where an assailant began stabbing people near Beit Levenstein. Three Israelis were injured, one seriously before the terrorist was overpowered. There was another stabbing attack in Ra'anana later in the morning, and a further stabbing attack in Kiryat Ata near Haifa.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is convening an emergency Cabinet session.
