Palestinian beaten, detained after allegedly stabbing Israeli

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was violently beaten and detained on Tuesday after allegedly injuring an Israeli man in a stabbing attack in Raanana in central Israel, Israeli police and media said.

Police spokesperson Mickey Rosenfeld said that the 22-year-old Palestinian was from occupied East Jerusalem, and was "captured at the scene of the attack by people who saw the attack taking place."

Israeli media reported that he was left seriously injured after Israeli civilians violently beat him. According to Israeli news site Haaretz, he may also have been shot.

The incident took place near the Municipality in the center of Raanana.

The moderately injured Israeli was taken to hospital for treatment.

The incident comes after four reported stabbing attacks took place in Israel on Monday, leaving five Israelis injured, although witnesses have disputed that at least one of the incidents was actually an attack.

Three Palestinians were shot dead during the alleged attacks, including a 17-year-old, bringing the total number of Palestinians shot dead by Israel forces to 27 this month.

In clashes that have broken out across the occupied Palestinian territory, Israeli forces have also shot more than 1,300 Palestinians with live and rubber-coated bullets in the same time period, according to the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health.

The clashes were prompted by Israeli army and settler reprisals after four Israelis were killed in two separate attacks at the beginning of October, although tensions had been mounting for weeks.
