Knife-wielding Palestinian arrested at crossroads in West Bank
A Palestinian boy who was allegedly armed with a knife was arrested by soldiers on Tuesday evening at the Tapuah junction in the West Bank.
Footage from the scene showed soldiers restraining a suspect to the ground.
There was no immediate comment from the Israel Defense Forces on the incident.
Several media reports in Hebrew put the age of the suspect at 12 years old. Some reports said the suspect was 10 years old.
Reports say the boy threw the knife he was armed with to the side after soldiers fired shots into the air.
The Rescuers Without Borders emergency service said its medics were called to the scene, but no one was injured.
In another incident nearby, a 70-year-old Israeli woman was lightly injured after her car was the target of a stone attack near the Revava settlement.
The Magen David Adom ambulance service said its doctors were treating the woman for injuries caused by shards of glass, due to shattered car windows.
The incidents came at a time of mounting violence in the West Bank. Earlier on Tuesday, a maintenance vehicle working along the northern West Bank security fence came under fire.
Israeli troops have repeatedly come under fire in nighttime raids in the West Bank, during a months-long effort against Palestinian terrorists.
The military launched the operation after a series of deadly attacks that left 19 dead between mid-March and early May.
More than 2,000 suspects have been arrested since the start of the year, according to the Shin Bet security agency.
In pre-dawn raids on Tuesday, troops arrested five wanted Palestinians, with violent incidents in some areas, the IDF said.
