Israeli soldiers abducted, on Sunday afternoon, a Palestinian teenage boy in occupied East Jerusalem, reportedly for carrying a knife.

Media sources said the abducted teen, Osama Shaher Abu Za’nouna, 17, is from Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

They added that his family reported him missing, on Saturday morning, after he failed to show up for a final exam for school.

The teen was taken prisoner after Israeli police officers stopped and searched him when they received a report about a “suspicious person.” He was moved to an interrogation facility in Jerusalem.
