An indictment bill was served on Sunday to Jerusalem's district court against Aaisha Afghani, a 34 year-old resident of east Jerusalem. Afghani is being accused of a terror act classified as attempted homicide as well as for carrying a knife.

Last week, Afghani was caught at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, where she was seen approaching two IDF soldiers with a knife in her hand. Before she was able to carry out the attack, security forces neutralized her at the scene.
