Police: Israeli Wounded in Palestinian Attack in West Bank

Friday, 26 February 2016 05:33 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Police say an Israeli man was stabbed multiple times in the West Bank, the latest in months of near-daily Palestinian assaults on Israeli forces and civilians.

Spokeswoman Luba Samri says the man wounded Friday is in critical condition. She says the initial investigation indicates it was "most likely" a Palestinian attacker.

Palestinian attacks since mid-September have killed 28 Israelis. At the same time, at least 166 Palestinians were killed, most of them said by Israel to have been attackers. The rest died in clashes with troops.

Israel says the violence is fueled by a Palestinian campaign of incitement, compounded on social media sites that glorify and encourage attacks. Palestinians say it stems from frustration at nearly five decades of Israeli rule and dwindling hopes for gaining independence.
