PNN/Hebron/

A Palestinian youth was arrested in Hebron yesterday after Israeli ‘Border Police’ claimed that he intended to carry out a terror attack

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) yesterday evening carried out the arrest of an 18 year old Palestinian youth in Hebron, claiming that he had been intending to carry out a terror attack with a kitchen knife.

Israeli police released a statement saying that the youth had made his way towards Israeli barracks at a checkpoint, and that as the border guard was going through screening procedures, a kitchen knife fell from his sleeve.

Jewish Press reported that the Palestinian youth had approached the Border Police ‘suspiciously’ and that he had in interrogation admitted to planning an attack on a ‘policeman or a Jewish civilian’.

This has not yet been confirmed by independent sources.
