Prime Minister Yair Lapid will brief presumptive incoming prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the premier holds a security assessment at noon, the Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement.

The briefing comes in the wake of recent “security events,” the statement says.

One person was killed and 21 injured in two bombings at the entrances to Jerusalem this morning.

In addition, the body of an Israeli man who was killed in a car crash in the northern West Bank city of Jenin on Wednesday morning was believed to have been snatched by Palestinian gunmen from a hospital in the city.
