Israeli police detain 15-year-old girl in Hebron for allegedly possessing knife

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces Friday detained a 15-year-old Palestinian girl at a military checkpoint near the Ibrahimi Mosque in the occupied West Bank district of Hebron for allegedly having a knife in her possession, according to Israeli border police.

An official of the Israeli border police told Ma’an that the knife was found after authorities conducted a search on the teenager’s belongings. He added that it was unclear if the young girl had been planning to use the knife in a "terrorist attack." 

The official confirmed that the girl was still being interrogated by Israeli intelligence. 

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an that the teenager was detained an hour and a half after a 27-year-old Palestinian woman was killed by Israeli police officers near the Ibrahimi Mosque after an alleged stabbing attempt.

Rosenfeld was unable to confirm if the teenage girl was accompanied by a parent or guardian during the ongoing Israeli interrogations.

According to Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, international and Israeli law stipulates that a parental guardian must be present during an interrogation of a child.
