The spokesperson said “advanced technological means” were employed to track the minor, leading Israel Police and Border Guard Police to her house where she was arrested.

During the arrest the minor’s mother assaulted police who arrested her as well and took her in for questioning. The investigation of the minor revealed that she planned to carry out an attack on Israeli citizens.

Police said in addition to assaulting officers, the mother was being held on suspicion of incitement after they found images of her on social media shooting an automatic weapon and using incitement-related language.
