Secuirtymen at the scene of the stabbing of the soldier

A 14-year-old Israeli girl has been stabbed to death in an attack in the West Bank, hours after another knife attack wounded a soldier in Tel Aviv.

The latest incident occurred near a Jewish settlement. The assailant was shot and his condition is unknown.

A Palestinian from the West Bank city of Nablus was arrested in connection with the attack in Tel Aviv.

The stabbings come at a time of heightened tension between Israel and the Palestinians.

At the weekend, Israeli Arabs threw stones at police in mainly Arab towns in Israel after police shot dead a young Arab man, who had attacked them with a knife.
