Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem

Israeli occupation forces on Friday detained a Palestinian woman near the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukabbir.

Witnesses confirmed that police detained the woman, who remained unidentified, amid the presence of paramedics.

Israeli media claimed the woman was arrested purportedly for attempting to stab an Israeli passer-by with a knife in the so-called East Talpiot colonial settlement.

No injuries were reported though in the alleged stabbing attempt.

The circumstances surrounding the alleged stabbing attempt remain unclear and largely based on the Israeli version of events.

Though Israeli military has claimed that Palestinians were allegedly attempting to carry out attacks, in a majority of instances when Palestinians were killed human rights groups have disputed Israel’s version of events, arguing that many alleged attackers could have been subdued in a non-lethal manner.
