BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman was detained at a Hebron checkpoint on Monday after she allegedly "drew" a knife at Israeli soldiers, the Israeli army said.

An Israeli army spokesperson said the woman "drew" the knife "during a routine security check in Hebron."

Israeli soldiers called on her to hand it over and she "complied," the spokesperson said, adding that the soldiers then arrested the woman for questioning.

Israeli forces have detained a number of Palestinians for possession of knives in recent months following a spate of attacks by Palestinians that have left 19 Israelis dead since the beginning of October.

In the same period, more than 120 Palestinians have been shot dead by Israelis. While Israel alleged many of those were attempting to attack Israelis when they were shot, Palestinians and rights groups have disputed Israel's version of events in a number of cases.
