Border Guards arrested a 22-year-old Arab woman on Sunday afternoon, at one of the checkpoints near Mearas Hamachpeilah, after finding a knife on her.

The Border Guards asked the lady to go through a metal detector due to her suspicious behavior, in which the knife she was carrying was found. She withdrew the knife while trying to escape but was talked into putting it down. During questioning, it was apparent that she intended to carry out a stabbing.

The wannabe terrorist was transferred to security agencies for further investigation.
