A Palestinian youth was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at noontime Monday near Hawara checkpoint, south of Nablus, on allegations of an attempted anti-occupation stabbing.
The Israeli army spokesman said a Palestinian youth was arrested after he attempted to stab Israeli soldiers.
Reporting from the scene, eyewitnesses told the PIC that the young man was walking near the checkpoint while an Israeli woman suddenly fled the scene. A group of soldiers deployed in the area nabbed the young man.
A snapshot circulated by Hebrew-speaking news outlets showed a sharp object thrown on the ground and purported that it was carried by the youth.
