JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say a 14-year-old Palestinian girl has stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli policeman in a West Bank village.

Police say the incident took place Thursday as officers were redirecting traffic around a fallen tree on a highway in the Palestinian village of Al-Auja, in the Jordan Valley of the West Bank.

They say the teenager stabbed a police officer in the shoulder, and the officer ran after the teenager and arrested her without firing any shots.

Earlier, gunshots were fired at a police car near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank, lightly injuring one officer. Troops searched the area for the shooter.

The incidents are the latest in more than five months of Israeli-Palestinian violence.
