Palestinian Brothers Quizzed in Stabbing of 9-Year-Old Jewish Girl

Two Palestinian brothers suspected of involvement in the attack on a nine-year-old girl in the settlement of Psagot were arrested by the Israel Defense Forces.

The brothers, from the West Bank village of El Bireh, located several hundred yards from the girl’s home, were apprehended late Monday in the village and questioned by the IDF.

The IDF also found a knife smeared with blood from Noam Glick, the girl who was attacked.

The girl was attacked on the night of Oct. 5 while standing on the porch of her home. She was treated in Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem for wounds at the base of her neck, across her chest and on her ear. Shots also were fired during the incident, according to reports.

Following the attack, Israeli soldiers found a breach in the settlement’s fence. Psagot is located north of Jerusalem and adjacent to Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian Authority.

On Monday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas referred to the stabbing during a meeting in Ramallah with several left-wing Israeli members of Knesset, but did not directly condemn it.
