Israeli forces detain Palestinian south of Nablus after alleged stab attempt

March 27, 2017 11:42 A.M. (Updated: March 27, 2017 5:56 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army claimed Monday morning to have thwarted an attempted stabbing against Israeli forces at Israel's Huwwara military checkpoint south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, with no injuries being reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that a suspect attempted to stab Israeli forces at the checkpoint, which she referred to as the Shomron Regional Brigade junction.

Israeli forces were able to "subdue the attacker," she said, without using force. She added that she was "not aware" of any injuries being sustained by Israeli forces, and could not confirm if a weapon was seized in the incident.

Israeli forces have detained scores of Palestinians for allegedly being in possession of knives in recent months following a spate of alleged and actual small-scale knife attacks by Palestinians that surged in the fall of 2015.
