An Arab-Israeli woman was indicted Monday for carrying a knife and threatening to stab Jews.

Fatima Abu Tzvaih, a 34-year-old mother of four from the town of Ar'arat an-Naqab in the Negev, was caught carrying a knife and had messaged  her sister via Whatsapp that she "wants to carry out a stabbing attack against Jews and become a martyr."
