18-Sep-16: Another Palestinian Arab woman intercepted before she can stab someone

Israel National News reports on the arrest of a young Palestinian Arab woman this afternoon (Sunday)
after being seen advancing with a knife toward the town of Itamar in Samaria. There were no injuries in the incident. The woman, a 23-year-old resident of nearby Awarta, was walking along the road near the town armed with a knife. When she spotted the Military Security Coordinator (MSC) of Itamar, she immediately dropped the knife. The MSC arrested and handcuffed the young woman. Additional army and security personnel arrived in the area shortly afterward.
Times of Israel has this video grab (above) of her seated on the ground after being intercepted, with her hands in the air. There's likely to be a back-story as the investigation goes on. But of one thing we can be just about certain: the Arab-language media will be protesting that this is a perfectly innocent girl with absolutely no malign intentions and the knife she was brandishing was not a knife at all, and anyway it wasn't hers.

And so the next attempted stabber prepares himself or herself.
