Israeli forces detain Palestinian suspected in settlement mall attack

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained on Sunday a Palestinian suspected of having attacked a security guard in the illegal settlement of Maale Adumim three days prior.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said a 21-year-old Palestinian from the village of al-Eizariya in the Jerusalem district, identified as Saadi Ali Abu Hamid, was detained “after a joint campaign of Israeli police, general intelligence and army.”

An Israeli security guard was critically wounded in a stabbing attack in a shopping mall in the illegal Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim east of Jerusalem on late on Thursday night.

Al-Samri said a relative of Abu Hamid called Israeli police to turn him in. She added that Abu Hamid linked himself to the attack during initial interrogations, but that the investigation was still ongoing.

There have been a number of attacks carried out by Palestinians in or close to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank since the beginning of the year.

However, the majority of alleged Palestinians attacks since a wave of unrest swept the occupied territory in October last year have been directed at Israeli military forces deployed in the West Bank.
