The past week has seen a wave of Palestinian attacks on Israelis. Here is a list of the terror attacks that rocked Israel this week and the events that led up to them.
Netanyahu has banned government ministers and lawmakers from visiting the Temple Mount. The order came following a day that saw at least six Palestinian attacks on Israeli targets.
The slow-burning Israeli-Palestinian conflict has flamed up in the past week with a series of terror attacks, but it has happened before.
Speaking to the U.N. General Assembly, the Israeli prime minister and Palestinian Authority president both accused the world body of neglecting them.
