Inhuman zionists Shoot, Arrest Palestinian in Fresh Stabbing Attempt
A Palestinian tried to stab an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank on Monday but was shot and arrested, the Israeli army said.
“A Palestinian armed with a knife attempted to stab a soldier during a security check near the community of Hermesh, southwest of Jenin,” an occupation army statement said, referring to the area in the northern West Bank.
“Forces responded and shot the assailant, thwarting the attack. The attacker is receiving medical treatment at the scene,” the statement added, without giving details on the severity of his wounds.
Palestinian security sources identified the man as 18-year-old Zaid al-Ashqar, from Saida village near Tulkarem.
The occupied territories have been, since October, rocked by a wave of attacks against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds. Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.
The Palestinian operations since the start of October have killed 22 Israelis, while the Israeli occupation forces have killed 146 Palestinians
