A Palestinian has stabbed three Israelis in the central city of Raanana, seriously wounding one of them, before being shot and arrested by Israeli forces.

Police say the 20-year-old Palestinian stabbed the Israelis on Saturday during the Jewish Sabbath.

An Israeli man was seriously wounded in the stomach. Two women were lightly wounded.

It is the latest incident in a three-month spree of near-daily Palestinian attacks on Israelis that have killed 20.

At least 116 Palestinians have been killed by Israel’s response, of which Israel says 79 were attackers.

The rest were killed in clashes with Israeli forces.

Israel blames incitement by political and religious leaders. Palestinians say the attacks stem from despair at achieving statehood.
