Israeli Border Guard Police neutralized an armed female Arab terrorist Tuesday morning after she attempted to stab them outside a gas station at the entrance to Kfar Adumim, the Israel Police spokesperson said.
The Israel Police dispatched received a call from the settlement of Alon, northeast of Ma’ale Adumim, saying that an Arab suspect had tried to hide in a falafel shop at the Kfar Adumim gas station; the shop owner told police the suspect refused to leave.
Border Guard Police who were called to the gas station were told on the way to the site that the suspect — a 37-year-old female resident of the Palestinian Authority town of Yatta (a major hotbed of Palestinian Authority terrorism in Judea and Samaria) — had left the shop. They set out to search and found her near the gas station on the road leading to Alon.
The forces called the woman and began the process of detaining her, when suddenly she pulled out a pair of scissors and charged at them, shouting in Arabic, according to Border Guard Police.
“One of the fighters fired at her, which neutralized her as a threat, and wounded her. The terrorist was moderately injured, according to medical sources, and was evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus,” Israel Police said.
Upon searching her belongings following the incident, a knife was found in her purse as well.
No Israeli casualties were reported.
A similar attack took place Sunday when a Palestinian Authority terrorist attacked an IDF soldier with a knife at the entrance to Kiryat Arba next to Hebron. The attacker was shot and wounded by the soldiers at the site. He was taken with minor wounds to a local hospital for treatment. No Israeli casualties were reported.
