Six people were wounded Thursday when a Palestinian man stabbed and shot at market-goers in central Israel, police said.

The injuries reportedly were "light or moderate", and CNN reported that none of the injured were in life-threatening condition.

"Police are still investigating whether the shooting and the stabbing are related", Al-Samri said, adding that "a suspect, seemingly Palestinian, was arrested as police rushed to the scene for investigations". A man told medical personnel that he had been stabbed in the neck while attempting to apprehend the assailant before police arrived.

Brexit deal will go to United Kingdom parliamentary vote: minister
So do I, and so does this House, which last week voted by a majority of 384 in support of the government triggering Article 50. The Commons is beginning detailed scrutiny of the European Union Bill, with Labour, SNP and Lib Dem MPs seeking concessions.

Israeli police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said the man from the occupied West Bank city of Nablus in the West Bank opened fire with an automatic weapon.

All four are being taken to Petah Tikva's Beilinson hospital for treatment.

Since 2015, Palestinian attackers have carried out numerous stabbings, shootings and assaults using cars, killing 41 Israelis and two visiting Americans.
