JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel's prime minister has criticized the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank for its failure to publicly condemn a recent spate of attacks on Israelis.

Benjamin Netanyahu says those "who do not clearly oppose terrorism cannot wash their hands of it."

His remarks were directed at the Palestinian Authority, which runs the West Bank.

He spoke a day after a Palestinian woman stabbed a female Israeli paramilitary police officer in the neck, seriously wounding her. Later in the evening, three Israelis were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the West Bank.

Last week, there was a similar stabbing attack in Jerusalem and a shooting attack at a West Bank settlement, which killed an Israeli man.

Israel has seen a wave of so-called Palestinian "lone wolf" attacks in the past year.
