Soldiers from the Nahal Brigade arrested a 25-year-old Palestinian who planned to stab soldiers at the Gush Etzion tunnel checkpoint Sunday morning. Troops were alerted to the attacker when they noticed the Palestinian's suspicious behavior and long coat. Upon inspecting him, soldiers found a 15-centimeter knife inside his coat. The Palestinian was arrested and handed over to the Shin Bet for questioning. IDF commanders praised the troops' alertness in thwarting the attack.
