Israeli police abducted, on Wednesday, a Palestinian teen, after an alleged stabbing attack, which left three illegal Israeli settlers injured near the Hebron Gate, at the entrance to the Old City of occupied Jerusalem.

Three illegal Israeli settlers were injured, on Wednesday afternoon, in an alleged stabbing at the Hebron Gate (Bab Al-Khalil), one of the gates leading to the Old City of occupied Jerusalem, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

After the incident, police were deployed in large numbers near the scene, impeding the movement of Palestinian citizens, and inspecting their identification, a searching their possessions.

Israeli army radio claimed that the accused teen was injured, however, no further details were available at the time of writing this report.

Shortly after the alleged attack, Israeli forces invaded the home of the accused teen, in the Jabal al-Mokabber neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem.

Soldiers stormed the family home, on Wednesday evening, ransacked it, and proceeded to abduct the youth’s mother and sister.

The abduction of family members of an alleged perpetrator is a clear act of collective punishment, by the Israeli occupation army.

Pillage is prohibited.
Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited."
