A Palestinian woman tried to stab security forces while they were checking a bus passing through the A'Zaim checkpoint next to Jerusalem on Wednesday.



Police fired into the air and police detectives who happened to be in the area were able to incapacitate the woman and take away the knife.

No injuries were reported. The woman is being interrogated.


On Tuesday, at the same checkpoint, multiple guns and magazines and hundreds of bullets were found in the car of a Palestinian family. The driver's wife, young daughter and days-old son were in the car when it was stopped.
