An Israeli soldier has been stabbed in Tel Aviv and police have arrested a Palestinian suspect.

The victim is “gravely” wounded, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said. She said the suspect is a resident of the area around the West Bank city of Nablus and was in Israel illegally.

Micky Rosenfeld, also a police spokesman, said all possibilities as to the attacker’s motive are being investigated, including whether it is related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been high in recent weeks, following last summer’s war in the Gaza Strip and increasing friction over a contested Jerusalem holy site.
