JERUSALEM — The Israeli military has shot a Palestinian after he stabbed and wounded an Israeli in the West Bank.

The military says the assailant's condition wasn't immediately known. Eli Bin, the head of Israel's rescue service MDA, told Israeli media that the Israeli was moderately wounded.

Wednesday's incident is the latest in an unrelenting, two month-long wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence. It comes a day after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited the region to try to calm tensions.

Attacks by Palestinians have killed 19 Israelis over this time period and 89 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, among them 57 said by Israel to be assailants.

Israel says the violence stems from incitement by Palestinians. The Palestinians say it's rooted in frustrations over Israel's nearly half a century-long occupation.
