An IDF soldier prevented a female Arab terrorist from carrying out a terror attack on Monday north of Jerusalem.
The woman was found to be armed with a knife as she attempted to cross through the Qalandiya security checkpoint, according to the IDF Spokesperson.
The woman, a resident of the Palestinian Authority, had with her an innocent-looking can of Pringles potato chips — but cleverly slipped inside was a very sharp laser kitchen knife, albeit one that was feminine, with a pink handle and beautifully decorated with painted strawberries on a white blade.
An IDF soldier just found this knife….in a box of @Pringles.
Our intel says the woman carrying it intended use it for a stabbing attack. Our soldiers at the Qalandiya security crossing stopped her from doing so.
This is why security checks are necessary. pic.twitter.com/94kuyu8tTg
