A female terrorist was caught a short while ago by Border Police at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, thanks to an alert policewoman. A Palestinian woman in her early twenties approached one of the checkpoints in the vicinity and raised the suspicion of the police stationed at the checkpoint. The policewoman stopped her and found three knives of different sizes hidden on her body. An initial investigation indicates the Palestinian woman was on her way to execute a terrorist attack, probably against the security forces.
Chief Superintendent Eliyahu Tsafrir stated: “The Police woman’s alertness and professional conduct prevented an escalation of this incident, and enabled the thwarting of this attack.”
The suspect was taken into custody by the police.
