The Times of Israel reports:

A soldier was lightly wounded Monday evening during a stabbing attack in the center of Tel Aviv.

Security forces arrested a Palestinian teenager near the scene of the attack, after he fled and tried to hide in a residential building. Police said the stabber likely had nationalistic motives and they were therefore treating the incident as terrorism.

The attacker was identified as a 17-year-old resident of the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the teen shouted “Allaha akbar” — the Arabic for “God is great” — during the incident. The attack was apparently carried out with a screwdriver, Channel 2 news reported.
