“Note to self” for those who are working security at the border or any other checkpoint: don’t forget to check the food items. It could save your life, and those of others.
Security personnel at the Shuafat checkpoint in northern Jerusalem were extra alert on Wednesday morning; they spotted a weapon hidden among food carried by an Arab woman.
As her items were being examined, one of the security forces found a knife hidden in a large yogurt bottle.
The woman, who was being questioned at the time, was immediately taken into custody and transferred for interrogation.
