JERUSALEM — JERUSALEM (AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he holds the Palestinian Authority responsible for a suspected Palestinian militant attack on a young Israeli girl.
Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday that the Palestinian government was to blame for what he called the continuing "incitement" in official Palestinian media. He did not elaborate.
Relatives of the 9-year-old girl say she was shot by a Palestinian gunman in the West Bank settlement of Psagot Saturday night. By Sunday doctors described her wounds as light.
There was no claim of responsibility.
Settler leader Israel Ganz says security forces spent the night searching for the perpetrator. He says officials believe the attacker escaped.
