Samri said that the assailant remains at large as he fled the scene after stabbing the driver.

She added that the injured Taxi driver was moved to an Israeli hospital in the city suffering moderate injuries.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli soldiers, stationed at the entrance of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, attacked several Palestinian youths and prevented them from entering the mosque.

Local sources reported that the army kidnapped one resident, identified as Jamail Al-Abbasy, and that a Palestinian woman was injured and was moved to a local hospital after being attacked by the soldiers.

Eyewitnesses reported that nearly 50 settlers, and members of the Likud Party of Benjamin Netanyahu, marched into the mosque, while the police attacked several worshipers while trying to push them away from the mosque area, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported.

Late on Monday at night, a group of extremist Israeli settlers burnt twenty Dunams of Palestinian agricultural lands that belong to residents of Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
