Israeli special forces detain stabbing attack suspect

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli special forces detained the Palestinian suspect, who carried out a stabbing attack, in the Jammain village south of the northern West Bank district of Nablus, on late Thursday, less than 24 hours after the attack.

Israeli security sources said that the Israeli army raided the Jammain village in military vehicles and broke into the house of the Palestinian suspect who had arrived to his house shortly prior to the raid.

Israeli forces detained the Palestinian, who was identified as Muaz Qassem Hussein, 19, and was taken to the Huwwara military checkpoint, south of the Nablus district.

Hussein had carried out a stabbing attack at the Huwwara military checkpoint, on Thursday afternoon, in which he stabbed and injured an Israeli soldier.

An Israeli settler was injured in the attack by Israeli live ammunition as Israeli forces opened fire at Hussein after he stabbed one of the soldiers.

The Israeli soldier was reported to be in light-to-moderate condition, while the Israeli settler was reported to have suffered light injuries to her lower body.
