An Israeli court on Monday sentenced a Palestinian woman to 30 months in prison for an alleged stabbing attempt in the occupied West Bank, according to a Palestinian NGO.

The Ofer military court also ordered Israa Samih Jaber, 19, to pay a fine of 2,000 shekels ($540), the Palestinian Prisoners Society said in a statement.

Israel authorities detained Jaber in February of last year on accusations of attempting to stab two Israelis in the West Bank.

According to official statistics, the number of Palestinian detainees languishing behind bars reached 6,000, including 270 children and 52 women.
