Israeli police say a Palestinian has stabbed an Israeli woman, critically wounding her.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the woman was stabbed several times Monday in the northern city of Afula. She was being treated in hospital in critical condition. Rosenfeld says police forces tracked down a Palestinian suspect in his 30s from the West Bank and shot him in the leg after he refused to stop. A knife was found on him.
Police were investigating a motive.
