Palestinian Teen Arrested on Suspicion of Stabbing Israeli Woman

The Israeli police have arrest a 14-year-old Palestinian girl in East Jerusalem on suspicion of stabbing an Israeli women.

“In the last few minutes, police forces arrested a suspect, a minor, who was located inside an educational institution near the scene of the incident,” Israeli police said in a statement.

The incident took place on the road into the flashpoint Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and the victim is a 26 years old woman.

The victim was walking with her children at the time of the attack, according to the statement. She immediately rushed to the hospital and was treated for mild injuries.

The Sheikh Jarrah has remained Hotpoint of conflict between Israel and Palestinian.

The neighborhood is home to at least seven Palestinian families who have been waiting for a Israeli legal ruling on whether they must surrender their homes to Jewish settlers in a case that exploded into armed conflict in and around Gaza in May.

On early Monday, a young Palestinian boy rammed his car into an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank. The assailant was shot dead by a security guard.

Moreover, another Palestinian assailant was shot dead by the police when he stabbed an Israeli civilian and tried to attack the police.

The incident occurred near the Damascus Gate entry to east Jerusalem’s Old City.
