The vigilance of Israel's military and police forces has saved countless lives during the ongoing terrorist violence in the Holy Land. Arutz Sheva's Uzi Baruch reports that two attacks were thwarted today:

An IDF force and a police special forces officer on Friday afternoon thwarted a terror attack at the entrance to the Sha'ar Binyamin industrial region in Samaria, to the north of Jerusalem.

The security forces spotted two Arab youths who got out of a car with Palestinian Authority (PA) plates at the entrance to the industrial region.

The behavior of the Arabs as they walked toward the entrance aroused the suspicions of the forces, who decided to check them.

In a body search knives were found on them and the two were arrested and brought in for investigation at the Binyamin police station...

Later on Friday, a female terrorist tried to stab passersby at the Gush Etzion Junction. She was neutralized by security forces and there were no injuries.
