Israeli troops on Sunday detained a young Palestinian female terrorist who was suspected of attempting to attack soldiers at an Israeli military checkpoint east of Bais Lechem.
According to a report on the Israeli news site 0404, the Israeli army received information about a young Palestinian woman planning to attack troops at the Mazmoriya checkpoint near the village of al-Numan.
The checkpoint is on a bypass road which links Israeli settlements east of Bethlehem with the illegal settlement of Har Homa.
A man who was driving the car the young woman was in was also detained for interrogation, the report said.
The report said a domestic-use gas canister was found in the car.
An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that a woman was arrested at the checkpoint, saying Israeli forces had received information that she was planning “some kind of attack.”
