Palestinian teen stabs Israeli soldier

Tuesday, June 02, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

A teenage Palestinian boy on Tuesday morning made his way through an Israeli checkpoint near the Samarian town of Nablus and stabbed an Israeli Border Police officer.

The young terrorist exploited a “humanitarian lane” set up by Israel at the checkpoint to get through without inspection.

The victim was said to be in moderate but stable condition and was transferred to a hospital in Jerusalem.

The child assailant was arrested unharmed and handed over to the Israeli Security Agency for questioning.

In other violence, a Palestinian terrorist gunman opened fire on a Jewish motorist and his passenger early Tuesday morning near the Samarian town of Kalkilya. Neither of the intended victims were harmed, but their car sustained damage.

One of the Israelis said the gunfire appeared to have come from inside the grounds of a nearby mosque.
