The Israel Police arrested this morning (Sunday) a female resident of Jerusalem’s Old City who expressed her desire to carry out a terror attack. Israel Police and Israeli Border Police officers arrived at the home of the 36-year-old suspect after they received information about her plan.

The officers discovered two knives in her home, which were placed near a copy of the Quran and a scarf with the colors of the Palestinian flag. The suspect was taken in for questioning and will appear in front of a judge for a remand hearing.

Just last week, JOL reported that Israel Border Police officers arrested a female terrorist armed with two knives as she was headed toward the Cave of the Patriarchs in order to carry out a terror attack.
