A Palestinian teen stabbed an Israeli woman on Monday, as Occupation forces were hunting for another Palestinian who killed Israeli settler a day earlier.
IOF on Monday hunted for a Palestinian suspect accused of breaking into a West Bank home and stabbing an Israeli woman to death.
As the hunt was under way, another stabbing occurred on a street in a separate West Bank settlement, wounding another woman identified as Michal Froman.
The 17-year-old Palestinian assailant was shot by security personnel and taken to hospital in severe condition after the attack in Tekoa south of Jerusalem.
While Sunday's killing was part of a months-long wave of Palestinian operations, it was the first inside a Zionist settlement home in the occupied West Bank and triggered fears that the unrest was worsening against the Israelis.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled further security measures on Monday, pledging to "strengthen the communities" after the deadly stabbing in the so-called Otniel settlement near the flashpoint city of Hebron in the southern West Bank.
"Whoever tries to harm us, we will bring him to justice," Netanyahu said. "In the end he will be found and he will pay the full price."
Israel's military confirmed it was searching for the suspect but declined to provide further details.
It also said Palestinians who work in settlements in the southern West Bank were not allowed in on Monday. The order applied to several thousand workers.
The occupied territories have been, since October 1, rocked by a wave of attacks against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds.
Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.
