A female terrorist was caught Monday morning by Border Police at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, thanks to an alert policewoman.

The Arab woman, in her early twenties, approached one of the checkpoints in the vicinity of the holy site and raised the suspicion of police at the checkpoint. The policewoman stopped her and found three knives of different sizes hidden on her person. An initial investigation indicates the Arab woman was on her way to carry out a terrorist attack, probably against the security forces there.

The woman was released only a year ago from Israeli prison, where she served time for another failed stabbing attempt.

Chief Superintendent Eliyahu Tsafrir stated: “The Policewoman’s alertness and professional conduct prevented an escalation of this incident, and enabled the thwarting of this attack.”

The suspect was taken into custody.
