Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has cancelled his upcoming trip to Germany, which was scheduled to mark 50 years of diplomatic relations between the two nations, amid the ongoing wave of Palestinian terrorism in Israel.
According to a senior Israeli official, Netanyahu informed German Chancellor Angela Merkel of the cancellation and is looking to reschedule the visit. Netanyahu was to arrive in Berlin on Wednesday morning and return on Thursday evening.
On Wednesday, the wave of Palestinian terrorism continued with an Israeli man moderately wounded in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City, while another Palestinian terrorist stabbed an Israeli soldier in Kiryat Gat. In the second attack, the terrorist attempted to hole up in a nearby building before being shot dead by the police.
