A teenager from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiya tried to hang himself on Tuesday while imitating a Turkish soap opera with friends, police said.
The 13-year-old boy and his friends were imitating actors from the Turkish soap ‘Valley of the Foxes’. The boy tied a belt around his neck and attached it to a window, before jumping, police said.
He was transferred to hospital.
Police called on families to monitor television programs which may have a negative impact on children.
