Jerusalem - Police say a stabbing attack in southern Israel has wounded four people, two of them seriously.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says the Saturday night stabbing appears to be ideologically driven, rather than criminal. Police are sweeping the city of Kiryat Gat to try and apprehend the attacker.

Over the past two months, Palestinian attacks have killed 17 Israelis, mostly in stabbings, while 84 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire. Of them, 52 are said by Israel to be attackers and the rest were killed in clashes with Israeli troops.

The wave of violence began over tensions surrounding a sensitive Jerusalem holy site and has since spread across Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza border.
