This is the third consecutive week in which an attack takes place in the area.

 

On Saturday, police arrested a 20-year-old Palestinian man armed with a knife in the West Bank settlement of Har Adar. After a preliminary investigation carried out by Border Police, investigators suspect the man intended to carry out a terror attack. The suspect, who entered the settlement by crossing through the fence in a nearby Palestinian village, was taken in for further questioning

 

 

In addition, last week, a Palestinian terrorist tried to stab a soldier standing at a bus stop at the Gitai Avishar Junction on Highway 5 in the northern West Bank.
