Four Israelis were stabbed and wounded in the country’s south on Saturday while violence continued to roil the West Bank ahead of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit next week.
Police also raided and shut down a Palestinian radio station in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron, and a Palestinian fireman was allegedly shot by Israeli forces.
In the southern city of Kiryat Gat, the four Jews were stabbed by an attacker near the football stadium, police said.
“Four Israeli citizens were injured,” a police statement said.
The suspect had fled and hid in a nearby building for more than four hours before being apprehended by police, who identified him as a 16- or 17-year-old Palestinian from a village near Hebron.
Police said two other Palestinian teens were arrested nearby for assisting him.
