    Israeli soldiers secure the scene after a Palestinian man wounded an Israeli soldier with a knife at a crossing between Israel and West Bank north of Jerusalem Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015. The attacker was shot and wounded by the troops.

    Israelis are stocking up on guns and pepper spray following a wave of stabbing attacks by Palestinians, NBC News reported.

    Some stores have sold out of pepper spray as knife attacks are almost impossible to predict and potential attackers are difficult to identify.

    Clashes have left seven Israelis and 33 Palestinians dead since the beginning of October.
