Israeli forces detain schoolgirl in Jerusalem, alleging she had knife

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday detained a Palestinian schoolgirl for alleged possession of a knife in the Wadi Hilweh area of Silwan neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, the head of a local watchdog said.

Jawad Seyam, who heads the Wadi Hilweh Information Center, said that Israeli forces detained 15-year-old Manar Majdi Shweki on the grounds that the girl was carrying a knife.

Israeli forces found the alleged knife during a search of her belongings, although it was not clear what prompted the search.

Palestinian youths reportedly filmed the search and arrest of the girl on their phones, which were later confiscated by Israeli forces.

Clashes subsequently broke out in the area, and one youth was reportedly injured from shrapnel after a stun grenade exploded nearby.
