Female Terrorist Attempts Attack at Damascus Gate

A female Arab teen-terrorist attempted to stab Israeli troops at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate on Tuesday morning.

The terrorist, 16, was arrested after pulling a knife on border guards when they asked to search her.


There were no Israeli injuries reported.

“The police reacted quickly, pushed her away and subdued her,” a police spokesperson said.



Also Tuesday morning, a female Arab armed with a knife was detained outside  Carmei Tzur.

The terrorist was arrested by the security guard at the entrance of the Jewish community in the Etzion bloc.

The IDF was investigating the incident, which comes several weeks after two fatal terror attacks inside Jewish communities.
