A terror attack was foiled outside of the Me’oras Hamachpelah Tuesday afternoon, a day after a similar attack was carried out nearby.
The terrorist, a 17-year-old Palestinian Authority resident, approached the entrance of the Me’oras Hamachpelah Tuesday, while carrying a knife concealed on his person.
When Border Police officers instructed him to lift up his shirt after he set off the metal detector, the terrorist refused the order, instead drawing the knife he had concealed and lunging at several Border Police officers.
Officers on the scene pointed their weapons at the terrorist and were ultimately able to take him into custody without opening fire.
