Two Terror Attacks Thwarted

As Prime Minister Netanyahu said earlier this week, Israel's security forces have been effective in preventing terror attacks recently. However, that neither means attacks are not still attempted nor that the IDF can relax. The Times of Israel reports on two attacks that were thwarted today, one in Hebron and one in Jerusalem's Old City:

A Palestinian man attacked an IDF soldier in the West Bank with an ax on Thursday, before troops shot and killed him, the army said...

The ax apparently hit the soldier in the helmet and he was unharmed, according to unconfirmed accounts of the incident.

Earlier, two 12-year-old Palestinian boys were arrested in Jerusalem’s Old City after police discovered three knives concealed in one of their coats.

The Israel Police said it appeared the children were planning to carry out a stabbing attack. They were stopped for inspection after they raised the suspicions of policemen at the scene.
