JERUSALEM — Police say an attacker stabbed a Jewish woman in a market in an Arab town in southern Israel, seriously wounding her before running away.

Spokeswoman Luba Samri said the woman in her 60's was assaulted with a knife in Rahat, a mostly Bedouin town in Israel's south.

The last five months have seen nearly-daily Palestinian assaults, mainly stabbings, against Israeli civilians and security personnel that have killed 27 Israelis. Some 155 Palestinians, the majority of whom Israel says were attackers, were killed by Israeli fire during that time. The rest died in clashes with Israeli security forces.

Israel says the violence is fueled by a campaign of Palestinian incitement. Palestinians say it stems from frustration at decades of occupation.
