Border Police officers arrested a young Palestinian woman, 17, who was allegedly on the verge of committing a stabbing attack against security forces at Tapuah Junction in the West Bank on Tuesday.

The officers conducted a security check after receiving prior warning from the IDF about a Palestinian woman from Jenin who had left her home earlier in the day Tuesday in order to attack Israelis.

The police noticed the woman acting suspicious at a checkpoint and took her aside for questioning. After a bodily search, she was found to have been carrying a knife, according to authorities.
