Israel Border Police arrested on Tuesday another Palestinian Authority Arab planning to stab Jews at the Patriarchs’ Cave in Hevron, where attempted knife attacks have become routine.
The 21-year-old terrorist from the Hevron area admitted to police, who discovered he was hiding a sharpened tool behind his back, he was planning to stab a soldier in revenge for previously having been arrested in Beit Shemesh.
The official Palestinian Authority WAFA website continued on Tuesday to incite Arabs against a Jewish presence in and near the Patriarchs’ Cave. It reported that Jews tried to turn a nearby building “into a Jewish temple.” Their proof was that “Jewish settlers brought chairs and other furniture,…which indicates they want to turn it into a prayer area for Jews.”Jewish Press News Briefs
