Border Police forces thwarted an attempted terror attack in Jerusalem's Old City last week, Israel Police said on Sunday afternoon.
The suspect, a Palestinian resident of the West Bank in his 20s, was identified by the Israeli forces after pacing in a manner that raised officers' suspicions, police said.
After Border Police officers conducted a search, the suspect was found carrying a pair of scissors which he attempted to sneak in a plastic bag.
Following an interrogation, it was revealed that the suspect was planning to carry out a terror attack using the scissors. An indictment is expected to be filed against him in the coming days, police said.
