A Palestinian man was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed and moderately wounded a 17-year-old Jewish youth at the Tapuah Junction in the West Bank.

Border Police officers identified the Ramallah resident stabbing the youth and arrested him.

Police stated that the suspect admitted to the stabbing, saying that he chose his victim because he was Jewish.


MDA paramedics treated the victim on the scene before evacuating him to Rabin Medical Center - Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva.

Following the stabbing, Samaria Citizens' Committee head Benny Katzover called on the IDF to enact harsher responses to terror attempts and called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to respond with the weapon of the "Zionist answer," by advancing settlement plans after each terror attack.
