Young Palestinian teen detained near Hebron after alleged attempted attack

Feb. 21, 2016 12:03 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 21, 2016 5:07 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained on Sunday a young Palestinian teenager near Hebron in the occupied West Bank after he allegedly tried to carry out a stabbing attack, the Israeli army said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that Israeli forces “thwarted a stabbing attack” east of Hebron near the village of Bani Naim.

Israeli media reported that the Palestinian boy was 14 years old. The spokesperson said she could not confirm the information.

However, the spokesperson said there were no injuries in the incident.

This marked the second detention of a Palestinian minor for an alleged stabbing attempt on Sunday morning.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri told Ma’an that a 17-year-old girl was detained at a checkpoint in the district of Nablus on Sunday morning after Israeli troops saw her holding a knife.

Over 170 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and settlers since a wave of unrest spread across the occupied Palestinian territory in October.

The unrest has been marked by a surge of small-scale attacks carried out by Palestinian individuals -- predominantly on Israeli military targets -- which have left over 25 Israelis dead, with the majority of alleged Palestinian attackers shot dead on site.
