Border Patrol soldiers successfully subdued a Palestinian woman who attempted to stab soldiers at a checkpoint in Hebron on Thursday.

A suspicious woman approached the checkpoint, ignoring the soldier's calls that she stop and eventually pulling out a knife as she continued her progress. The Border Patrol soldiers gained control of the woman as she attempted to stab one of them. No one was injured in the attack.

She was transferred to security services for interrogation.
