Police have reported thwarting an attempted terrorist attack in the Old City of Jerusalem, where a 17-year-old resident of Al-Issawiya was apprehended while armed with a knife.

The young woman, an Arab, aroused suspicion due to her behavior. Upon closer inspection, she revealed a knife concealed beneath her clothing. Border guards swiftly intervened, pointing guns at her and successfully detaining her.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

The apprehended individual has been transferred to investigators from the General Security Service (Shin Bet) for questioning.
