Israeli media sources reported Friday [September 20, 2013] that a Palestinian youth was kidnapped by Israeli soldiers at a roadblock in the northern part of the West Bank allegedly after attempting to stab a soldier. The sources said that the youth “carried a big knife” and attempted to stab one of the soldiers manning the roadblock.
According to the report, the soldiers managed to stop the attack, and arrested the Palestinian before taking him to a military base for interrogation.
On Friday afternoon, at least 10 Palestinians were injured when Israeli soldiers used excessive force against the weekly nonviolent protests against the Apartheid Wall and illegal settlements in different parts of the West Bank.
Dozens of nonviolent protesters have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.
