A Palestinian terrorist attempted to carry out a stabbing attack near Ma’ale Adumim on Sunday afternoon. He was shot and neutralized by an armed civilian who saw him preparing to stab a Haredi man with a screwdriver. While no Israelis were physically injured in the attempted attack, three eye-witnesses are suffering from shock.

On Thursday, Israel Border Police officers stationed at the entrance to the Cave of the Patriarchs arrested a Palestinian who was carrying a knife. It is suspected that the Palestinian hid the knife in his sock because he was planning to carry out a terror attack at the site.
