A Palestinian teen stabbed and seriously wounded a Zionist settler at a petrol station outside a West Bank occupation settlement before being apprehended
A Palestinian teen bravely stabbed and seriously wounded a Zionist settler at a petrol station outside a West Bank settlement before being apprehended, occupation police said Thursday.
The 17-year-old Palestinian male from Bir Nabala, a village south of Ramallah, stabbed the ultra-Orthodox Zionist Jew twice in the back near the Givat Zeev settlement on Wednesday night and then fled.
Zionist bystanders pursued the Palestinian young man, who meanwhile discarded the knife, and subdued him until the occupation police arrived at the scene and arrested him.
Ambulance evacuated the injured settler to a hospital in Al-Quds in a serious condition.
Violence in Palestine erupted since a group of Zionist settlers stormed AL-Aqsa compound in occupied al-Quds under the protection of Zionist security forces, killing so far 159 Palestinians and claiming 25 Zionists.
Few Palestinians of those who were killed have been young people who carried out or tried to carry out stabbing and running-over operations, while many other Palestinian martyrs have been shot dead by Zionist security forces during clashes.
The international community has repeatedly called for moves to reduce tensions but Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to step up punitive measures.
