Israel's national rescue service, known as Magen David Adom, said that a man was severely hurt while a woman was moderately injured.
Army radio reports the victims' ages are 17 and 19.
Friday's attack comes a day after a stabbing took place in the Old City of Jerusalem.
In that incident officers shot dead a knife-wielding Palestinian teen and seriously wounded another after they stabbed a policeman outside a flashpoint Jerusalem holy site.
