Israeli police detain Palestinian at Qalandiya checkpoint for alleged knife possession


The Gaza Ministry of Health said in a statement that several shells were fired towards a site belonging to the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement.

A Palestinian resident of the Gaza Strip was reportedly arrested by Israeli police on Wednesday at the Qalandiya military checkpoint - which separates Ramallah and Jerusalem - according to Israeli news website Ynet.

Israeli troops stationed at watchtowers along the border opened fire at Palestinian paramedics who rushed to the scene.

The prisoners' club also says around one million Palestinians have been detained by Israel since the country was founded in 1948.

The injuries were rushed to the European Hospital for treatment.

Israeli attacks on Palestinian protesters have so far left 34 killed and hundreds injured.

This incident comes amid weeks-long Palestinian protests in Gaza calling for the Right of Return for Palestinian refugees and in rejection of the U.S. decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognise the latter as the capital of Israel.

In a statement on the occasion of the Palestinian Prisoners Day, Arab Parliament Speaker Mashaal bin Fahm al-Salami urged the United Nations "to send an global investigative committee to the Israeli occupation prisons to be acquainted with the racist practices and massive violations being committed on a daily basis against Palestinian prisoners".
