Terrorist Attack Prevented At Gush Etzion Junction

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

A 15-year-old knife-wielding Palestinian who was arrested on Tuesday evening at the Gush Etzion Junction confessed in interrogation to planning to stab “a Zionist.”

Local police said that a civilian called an emergency number just after 5:00 p.m. and reported a suspicious Palestinian at the popular hitchhiking spot in Gush Etzion on the way to Chevron.

A police officer arrived and searched the suspect, discovering a large knife. Police sources say that in the initial interrogation the teen said he intended to “stab a Zionist to death.”

The police also noted that the Palestinian teen was not cooperating at this stage.

Two weeks ago a female Arab terrorist from Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party stabbed a Jew before being shot and wounded while fleeing the scene.
