Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Monday a 16-year-old child from Jerusalem after claiming that he attempted to stab an Israeli Policeman.The child, a resident of Jerusalem, reportedly carried a knife which was sufficient enough to arrest him and charge him of the attempted attack, local sources reported.

The Police stated that the child confessed during interrogation that he planned to stab a policeman in Jerusalem.

There are dozens of Palestinians who were previously arrested by the army at roadblocks after the soldiers reportedly found out they carried knives as “concealed weapons”.

Some of the arrests were made near the Ibrahimi Mosque, in the center of the occupied southern West Bank city of Hebron.
