Jerusalem - Israeli police say a Palestinian stabbed an Israeli teenager in Jerusalem wounding him lightly.

Spokesperson Luba Samri said the attacker stabbed a 14-year-old Israeli in central Jerusalem before running away.

She said police later arrested him.

It was the latest in a series of Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers this week that have shocked the country.

Earlier on Friday an Israeli stabbed and wounded 4 Arabs in southern Israel in an apparent revenge attack.

Israel's Prime Minister has condemned the attack.

Benjamin Netanyahu "strongly condemned the harming of innocent Arabs." He said whoever deploys violence will be brought to justice.

Earlier an Israeli man injured 2 Bedouin Arabs and 2 Palestinians in Dimona in the south of the country.

The attacker reportedly carried out the attack in revenge for a series of Palestinian attacks this week.
