Border Police and police troops foiled a stabbing attack at a checkpoint near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron on Saturday afternoon.
The troops noticed an arab woman who was acting suspiciously and instructed her to stop, but she ignored them and continued advancing towards them.
The troops managed to stop the woman and arrest her. When they searched her, they found a large kitchen knife in her possession that she was going to use in a stabbing attack against the troops.
The 27-year-old terrorist from Yatta, near Hevron, was taken for questioning.
