    Tel Aviv Stabbing Not Political: Israeli Police

    A Palestinian protester throws back a tear gas canister that was fired by Israeli troops during clashes, in the West Bank town of al-Ram, north of Jerusalem, Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015. Ten Israelis have been killed over the last month, mainly in stabbing attacks. On the Palestinian side, 48 people have been killed.

    Israeli police say a stabbing in Tel Aviv was unrelated to the recent wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence.

    Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says an Israeli soldier was "very lightly injured" in a stabbing in Jaffa, a largely Arab area of Tel Aviv. She says the stabbing was of a "criminal" nature.

    There have been almost daily Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings, against Israeli civilians and security forces in recent weeks. Ten Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks, while 51 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 30 said by Israel to be attackers and the rest in clashes.
