IDF troops arrested a Palestinian teenager Saturday morning after she arrived at an IDF post in Hebron armed with knives, with the intent of attacking soldiers, Israel Radio reported. The 16-year-old was detained near the Cave of Mahpela on Saturday morning after troops found four knives in her bag, said Superintendent Shlomi Sagi, the Israeli police spokesman for the West Bank. Upon investigation, a letter was discovered at the woman's house, detailing her plans to attack Israeli soldiers. On Friday evening, security forces stopped a 21-year-old Palestinian man walking toward the Jewish area of Hebron, and discovered he was carrying a concealed knife with which he planned to stab settlers, he added.
