The attacks, plus another two stabbing attacks in the central Israeli city of Raanana, north of Tel Aviv, mark the most serious series of incidents in a month-long wave of violence.
A police spokesman said a Palestinian stabbed and wounded an Israeli man waiting at a bus stop on the main thoroughfare of Raanana today.
The Israeli was moderately wounded and amateur video distributed by police showed several men kicking and beating the alleged assailant as he lay on the ground. The ambulance service said he was seriously hurt.
A shopkeeper said that, after hearing shouting, he had grabbed a heavy wooden umbrella and ran outside to confront the assailant.
'He started stabbing the guy. I hit him a couple of times and kicked him and the knife flew out of his hand,' the store owner said. 'I wish I had had a gun - I would have shot him.'

Police closed major highways leading in and out of Jerusalem, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called an emergency meeting of his Security Cabinet, where police were to present a plan to halt the violence.

Over the weekend, nine Palestinians in Gaza, including a mother and her two-year-old child, were killed in Israeli-Palestinian violence.
The stabbings have rattled Israel. The attackers, many of them teenagers, have had no affiliation with militant groups, and the seemingly random nature of the stabbings has made it difficult to predict or prevent them.
Netanyahu has come under heavy criticism for failing to stop the violence, and an opinion poll this week showed that more than 70 per cent of the public is dissatisfied with his handling of the crisis.
Some of the attacks have been carried out by members of Israel's Arab minority.
In a fiery speech to parliament, Netanyahu accused the country's Arab leaders of helping incite weeks of violence, accusing Arab parties of 'undermining' the country and calling on Israel's Arab citizens to 'kick out the extremists among you'.
