Officers noticed the 26-year-old Hevron resident loitering suspiciously near the Jewish holy site, and stopped him for questioning. Upon searching him, they discovered a knife, apparently intended for use in a stabbing attack...
"Time and time again we see that the alertness and determination of the officers is a crucial factor in the fight against the 'lone wolf' terrorist phenomenon," [local Border Police commander] said.
