Two Terror Attacks Thwarted This Morning

Terrorists tried to make Tuesday another bloody day in Israel, but Israeli security forces kept them from doing so. Arutz Sheva's Kobi Finkler reports on two thwarted stabbing attacks earlier today:

Military police at the Qalandiya checkpoint arrested a Palestinian woman who intended to carry out a terror attack against Israelis.

She tried to smuggle a knife in her bag, but it was picked up by the X-ray machine. Under questioning, she admitted that she wanted to attack Jews.

Earlier this morning, another Arab woman was prevented from stabbing police officers in Jerusalem's Old City. In that instance, she was already approaching the officers with the knife in hand when they shot and killed her. No one else was harmed.
