A 20-year-old Palestinian man was arrested by Border Police officers near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron with a small knife Sunday morning.

Authorities suspect that the man planned on carrying out a stabbing attack in the area. The suspected would-be terrorist was taken for interrogation.

Residents of Kiryat Arba were set to embark on a Purim march from the settlement to the Cave of the Patriarchs around the same time as the man was arrested.
