A Palestinian who attempted to stab a soldier near the West Bank Palestinian town of Azoun was arrested on Friday.
The incident occurred when an army unit on a routine patrol stopped a vehicle for a security check.
Soldiers identified a suspicious object in the pocket of one of the passengers, and asked him to present the object to them. He then pulled out a knife and attempted to stab a soldier, the army said.
Soldiers took the man into custody, and he is being questioned. There were no injuries.
