Meanwhile, Israeli news website Ynet reported that a 16-year-old Palestinian boy was detained Monday morning at the Ibrahimi mosque in the old city of Hebron for allegedly hiding a gun. He was taken in for questioning by Israeli forces.

Locals identified the teen as Mutasem Nasser Abu Irmeileh.

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 147 search and arrest operations across the West Bank between November 7 and November 20.
