17-year-old Palestinian detained for allegedly possessing knife in Jerusalem


BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces reportedly detained a 17-year-old Palestinian on Thursday morning in occupied East Jerusalem after Israeli soldiers alleged that the teenager had a knife in his pocket after a body search at a Jerusalem light-rail station, according to Israeli media.

Israel’s Channel 7 reported that the teenager is from the occupied West Bank and entered Jerusalem without an Israeli-issued permit. The teen was searched and subsequently detained after Israeli forces allegedly found a knife in his pocket.

 An Israeli police spokesperson was not available for immediate comment.
Scores of Palestinians, including numerous minors, have been detained for allegedly possessing knives, as Israeli forces have heightened security since a wave of violence first erupted across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel in October. Palestinians have routinely disputed claims made by Israeli forces during incidents involving minors, while Israeli forces typically interrogate Palestinian minors without a guardian present, in contravention to Israeli legal protocols and international law.
