The IDF said Saturday that it had arrested a man carrying a knife in a Jewish neighborhood of Hebron.
The man was detained at a checkpoint in the city after raising suspicions of soldiers stationed in the area.
The suspect was taken to a nearby facility for further questioning, where a preliminary investigation revealed that he intended to carry out a terror attack against Israeli Security Forces.
The IDF added that the incident occurred Saturday afternoon.
