A 17-year-old female Palestinian was charged with attempted murder at Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for the attempted stabbing of an IDF soldier last month at the Kalandiya Crossing checkpoint, separating Jerusalem and the West Bank. According to police, on December 12, the suspect charged the soldier, who was on guard duty, with a knife in her hand.

“Officers responded by arresting the female terrorist who had planned on carrying out the attack for a long time,” said Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld on Tuesday. “She was questioned, and as part of the investigation, she showed to officers’ drawings of pictures she made of how to stab them.
