A female soldier and four civilians were stabbed and lightly wounded by a terrorist in central Tel Aviv's Begin Street Thursday afternoon, in the second such terrorist attack today.

An Air Force soldier and policemen who were at the scene chased after the terrorist to nearby Mozes street, where they shot and killed him.

Magen David Adom teams evacuated the soldier, 20, to hospital, along with a woman aged about 60, a man aged about 40 and another woman aged about 40. They are all conscious and were stabbed in the upper body. A fifth victim was also reported.

The terrorist appears to have been armed with a screwdriver. The attack took place near Azrieli Towers and the Kirya area. 

Witness Chaim Abraham told Arutz Sheva he heard "several fast shots."

"I heard the shots and saw people running in the street," he said.

The attack follows by just a few hours an earlier stabbing attack in Jerusalem.

A 25-year-old yeshiva student was seriously injured and another man was lightly injured in a terror attack early Thursday afternoon at the Jerusalem light rail station, in front of national police headquarters near Ammunition Hill. 

Magen David Adom teams on scene at Haim Bar Lev Road treated the seriously injured man and brought him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in the capital, where he is now in surgery. 

The hospital reported that the student arrived in critical condition. He was subsequently sedated and is now breathing through a respirator. 

An initial police investigation revealed the terrorist, 19-year-old Tzuvhi Ibrahim Mahmad Abu Halifa from Shuafat in eastern Jerusalem, approached the light rail station, stabbed the haredi student in the neck with a knife and tried to escape. 

As he fled, Abu Halifa passed a Light Rail guard, who he attacked in an attempt to steal his weapon. The guard fought off Abu Halifa but the terrorist managed to escape. 

Special Patrol Unit forces operating in the area spotted the terrorist running toward French Hill Junction. When Abu Halifa noticed the forces, he attempted to turn back and enter a moving vehicle. The forces immediately chased after the terrorist, arresting him with the assistance of police reinforcements on the scene.
