A terrorist who tried to carry out a stabbing attack at the Shiloh Junction in the Binyamin region was prevented from doing so, and arrested. B’chasdei Shamayim, no Israelis were injured. The terrorist was arrested and is being questioned by IDF soldiers.

According to Hatzalah of Yehudah and Shomron, the attack was stopped when an individual observed the female terrorist sneaking her way to a bus stop where several IDF soldiers were waiting. The individual pulled out a weapon and ordered the terrorist to stop, and she responded by throwing away a box cutter she was holding and running away. She was caught by soldiers and slammed to the ground. A search yielded a bottle of flammable material, which she apparently was planning to use in the attack as well.

Officials congratulated the individual who detected the terrorist’s activities and prevented what could have been a major terror incident.
