Israel extends detention of injured Palestinian prisoner

Sept. 29, 2018 3:57 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 30, 2018 2:39 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military court of the Russian compound extended the detention of Palestinian injured prisoner Khalil Jabbarin, 16, for 13 more days.

The Palestinian Prisoners and Former Prisoners' Affairs Committee said that Jabbarin is currently held at the al-Ramla hospital.

Jabbarin, from Yatta City in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, was shot and injured with five bullets by Israeli forces, 3 of which hit him in his left arm, shoulder and armpit, one in his pelvis and another in his leg, after he carried out a stabbing attack killing one Israeli settler near the Gush Etzion settlement junction, north of Hebron, on September 16th.

The committee said that Jabbarin's detention was extended for further interrogation.

The Russian compound court had previously extended Jabbrin's detention for 10 days.

A number of Palestinians have been arrested, shot, or killed by Israeli forces for allegedly attempting to carry out attacks or being in possession of a knife at the Gush Etzion junction.

Though Israeli forces have claimed that Palestinians were allegedly attempting to carry out attacks in a majority of instances when Palestinians were killed, rights groups have disputed Israel's version of events in a number of cases, and argued that many alleged attackers could have been subdued in a non-lethal manner.
