JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say five Israelis have been wounded in a Palestinian militant attack near a Tel Aviv nightclub.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says an attacker crashed a car into two people early Monday, wounding them. He then got out and stabbed three others.
Samri says the attacker was a 19-year-old from the West Bank city of Nablus. He was arrested.
He too was injured and was taken to hospital.
Samri says the wounded include several policemen who were manning a police checkpoint near a popular nightclub in south Tel Aviv, Israel’s metropolitan center.
