Eng38HEBRON (PNIC):-Israeli forces detained a Palestinian teen, on Thursday night, while near the Ibrahimi Mosque compound in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Locals said that Israeli forces detained a Palestinian teen for allegedly being in possession of a knife.

The teen, identified as 14-year-old Ahmad Atef al-Awawda from the Old City of Hebron, was then reportedly transferred to an Israeli detention center for interrogation.
Hebrew-language news outlets reported that Ahmad was allegedly preparing to carry out a stabbing attack.

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

Hebron in particular grew as the epicenter of upheaval, with a number of Palestinians having been shot while being detained at military checkpoints in the area.

Eyewitnesses have also said in a number of cases that Israeli security forces planted knives on slain or imprisoned Palestinians to claim that they were acting in self-defense during a stabbing attack.
