Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the girl was hit in the upper body by a single shot as she played outside in the settlement of Psagot.
He said it appears to have been a Palestinian sniper attack carried out from long range. Tensions are high between Israelis and Palestinians in the area.
An Israeli soldier was recently shot dead by a sniper in the West Bank city of Hebron.
Mr Rosenfeld said Psagot residents have been told to stay at home while searches are under way.
