Israel army: Palestinian detained near Azzun trying to 'stab soldier'

June 6, 2014 4:49 P.M. (Updated: June 6, 2014 5:05 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army said on Friday that a Palestinian had been detained near Azzun west of Nablus for trying to "stab a soldier" after he was stopped in his vehicle during a patrol in the area.

The army said in a statement that the patrol had "apprehended a suspicious vehicle for checkup" and during the inspection the man in the vehicle "took out a knife and attempted to stab the soldier with it" after he was told to remove a "suspicious object apparent in his pocket."

The Israeli army subsequently "captured" the man and transferred him for "security questioning."

The man was reportedly 15 years old.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri said that the teen was taken to a police station to investigate details of the incident.
