Police in the Northern District said late Tuesday afternoon that they had thwarted an attempted stabbing attack, after  they arrested two men from an Arab Israeli village near Migdal Ha’emek who confessed to planning to carry out an attack.

The Northern District said that officers were called to a gas station in Migdal  Ha’emek after an employee reported seeing two suspicious figures. After a short search they said they located two teenage boys, aged 16  and 17, who had discarded a kitchen knife and a makeshift blade while police were  chasing them.

Police said the two teens confessed to plotting a stabbing attack, but that detectives have yet to determine where or when it was to take place.
