Three Muslimas were caught carrying concealed knives on their way to carry out a stabbing terror attack near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron.
Border Guard soldiers caught the three terrorists at one of the inspection posts.
The Border Police noted that “all three raised the suspicion of the soldiers in their behavior, which led to a search during which a knife was found on one of them.
“A quick preliminary investigation revealed that the three Muslimas had come to carry out a stabbing attack and that the two additional terrorists had thrown the knives before they arrived at the checkpoint from what appeared to be last moment regret.
“A search conducted by the forces under the direction of the suspects revealed that one knife was indeed thrown away, while the third knife was apparently taken by local residents.”
The terrorists, three sisters aged 15, 18 and 23 from the Arab village of Al-Arroub, were arrested for further questioning.
