Soldiers detained four Palestinians with knives headed for Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion on Saturday evening.
The suspects were spotted by lookouts in an army control room. A Kfir infantry company dispatched to the scene located the suspects, and found three knives and an improvised weapon in their possession.
“The suspects were en route to the community to carry out a terror attack, which was prevented due to the rapid identification by the lookouts, and the speedy arrival of the force. The suspects have been taken for questioning,” the IDF said.
