They added that police were investigating the stabbing in the city of Ramla, southeast of Tel Aviv, and did not identify the attacker.

An AFP photographer at the scene saw a body bag containing what was presented as the attacker's body, and a large number of police officers.

A spokesperson for Magen David Adom said the medical service was alerted to the attack in Harduf Street at around 4.20pm (5.20pm UAE time).

Medics treated the "18-year-old conscious female in serious condition with a stab wound to her upper body" and took her to the nearby Shamir Medical Center, the spokesperson said.
