Large knife found by Israeli forces during body search of suspected terrorist.

A terrorist stabbing attack was averted on Wednesday when alert Israeli forces serving at “Rachel’s checkpoint” became suspicious of one of the Arab residents in the area who asked to pass through and into the area.

The man aroused the suspicions of the soldiers with his behavior, and was taken aside for a body search by police.
