An Arab woman in her 20s attempted to stab a border police officer in the Arab village of Issawiya Wednesday night after officers arrested three Palestinians men who threw rocks at them while on patrol, police said.
According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, at approximately 7:30 p.m., roughly 200 meters from Hebrew University near French Hill, Border officers on patrol were attacked by a barrage of rocks thrown by the three male suspects.
“While they were being questioned the Arab woman attempted to stab one of the officers from behind,” he said. “She was trying to take advantage of the commotion but did not succeed.”
Rosenfeld said the officer was not injured during the attack, and the woman was arrested after being wrestled to the ground and disarmed.
