Security forces over the weekend arrested a 19-year-old resident of the Palestinian town of Yata, near Hebron, after he called the Israel Police 100 hotline threatening to attack Israelis with a knife that was in his possession.

Following the suspect's arrest, an indictment order was filed against him in a Beersheba court on charges of illegally entering Israel and issuing threats in possession of a knife.
