Israeli police say a Palestinian man has wounded at least seven people during an attack near a nightclub in the city of Tel Aviv.

Authorities said the man stole a car and crashed into a police checkpoint early Monday, then got out of the car and stabbed the victims.

The wounded include several police officers.

Police say the man is from the West Bank city of Nablus and was arrested after the attack.

Attacks by Palestinians inside Israel were once common, but have fallen off in recent years.
