|JERUSALEM — Pepper spray is flying off stores shelves and Israelis are stocking up on guns amid a wave of random "lone wolf" stabbing attacks by Palestinians.
"It's scary John Carlson Capitals Jersey ," Jerusalem resident Ben Zucher told NBC News not long after leaving a weapons shop. "When you walk down the streets you need to look around and make sure you know what's going on around you."
A spate of stabbings and clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces have left seven Israelis and 33 Palestinians dead since the beginning of October.
While security has been stepped up and troops have been deployed in Jerusalem, knife attacks are almost impossible to predict and potential assailants difficult to identify. Suspects have been aged as young as 13.

Some stores have sold out of pepper spray.
Shulamit Cohen, a jewelry shop employee in Jerusalem, said the incidents had left her on edge and nervous everywhere she goes.
"We look over our shoulders," Cohen said. "I bought pepper spray, if someone comes to me I will spray him and hope nothing happens. It's in my pocket all the time."
Jerusalem resident Nadi Cherna showed off a "gun that shoots tear gas."
She added: "I bought this because terrorists are in this area and we need to protect ourselves."
