  • Palestinian teenage arrested by Zionists in al-Quds

Israeli regime forces have arrested a Palestinian teenage girl in al-Quds over a retaliatory stabbing attack against an illegal Zionist settler.

According to reports, the Zionist regime claimed in a statement that an illegal settler was stabbed in the back and lightly wounded at the entrance to the flashpoint Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in al-Quds on Wednesday morning.

Regime forces later cordoned off Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, according to witnesses.

Palestinian said the Israeli forces closed all roads leading to the neighborhood, broke into homes, stopped and checked cars and buses as a helicopter hovered over the area in search of the assailant.

The regime later announced that it had arrested a teenage girl suspected of carrying out the attack in a nearby educational institution.

Meanwhile, regarding the incident, Hamas Spokesman Abdul Latif al-Qanoo said, “The heroic actions in the West Bank and al-Quds, the most recent of which was the stabbing of a settler in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, prove the greatness of our people whose resistance cannot be broken.”

He added, “Our people in the West Bank and al-Quds are in an open battle with the occupation. They will pursue invaders and herds of settlers, anywhere and by all available means, until they leave our lands.”

On Monday morning, the Israeli army martyred a Palestinian minor, who has been identified as 16-year-old Mohammad Nidal Younis from the village of Kufr Qalil in Nablus.

The teenager rammed a car into a military checkpoint near the occupied central West Bank city of Tulkarem, seriously injuring an Israeli guard.

Palestinian resistance groups praised the operation in Tulkarem as a natural response to the Israeli regime’s continuing crimes against Palestinians.

Palestinian Freedom Movement also said in a statement that “the heroic operation near Tulkarem pointed to the deeply-seated nature of resistance in the hearts and minds of our people. It was a natural response to the provocative actions of the [Western] media.”

“The operation showed that the blood of martyrs nurtures resistance and that occupiers will pay dearly for their crimes. Resistance is like a burning fire, and the occupation will be targeted anywhere on our lands,” the statement read.
