A Palestinian terrorist arrived at a Border Police stand and began moving quickly towards the officers with a knife in his hand. The officers arrested the terrorist after removing the knife from him.
Police said that during an initial investigation the terrorist admitted
that he had gone to the Border Police post in order to stab soldiers.
In February, Border Police stopped an 18-year-old Palestinian that attempted to stab soldiers near the Kalandiya crossing.
The policemen found a knife in the man's pocket, and he confessed to wanting to harm them.
