A Ramallah man reportedly said he stabbed a teen in the West Bank because he was Jewish.

The Palestinian, 20, stabbed his 17-year-old victim in the stomach near the Tapuach Junction in the northern West Bank. The teen was taken to an Israeli hospital with moderate injuries.

The attacker told Israeli police that he stabbed the teen because he was Jewish, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Three Palestinians from the Balata village were arrested on Sunday at the same junction after Border Police discovered that they were carrying seven bombs and a knife. They told police that they had planned to carry out a terror attack at the junction.
