A man aged around 40 was stabbed to death in Jerusalem’s Talpiot industrial zone on Thursday, police said in a statement.

Paramedics were called to the scene and transported the injured man to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in critical condition, where he later succumbed to his wounds.

Police said a suspect was arrested and there was no indication of a terror motive.

Four people were killed Wednesday, including a woman and a teen slain in apparently unrelated incidents in the northern town of Baqa al-Gharbiya.

A 23-year old man was shot dead in the morning in the predominantly Arab city of Tira, in central Israel and a man in his 40’s was killed in a drive-by shooting in Lod. Another man was lightly wounded in that incident.
