JERUSALEM, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- A 23-year-old Palestinian was apprehended by soldiers after allegedly stabbing a Jewish young man at the Tapuach junction in the West Bank on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old victim from Jerusalem's surroundings suffered light to moderate wounds and was evacuated by medical emergency services to the Bellinson Hospital in Petach Tikva, near Tel Aviv, the Walla! news website reported.

Police spokesperson Mickey Rosenfeld confirmed to Xinhua that the suspected perpetrator was arrested by the Judea and Samaria police department.

On Sunday evening, Border Police guards arrested three Palestinians after finding explosives in their bags as well as a knife.

The three, residents of the Palestinian village of Balata near Nablus, were interrogated and admitted they planned to carry a militant attack near the junction.

Tapuach junction is considered to be one of the weaker security targets in the West Bank as a friction point between Israeli settlers and Palestinians.
