The army, quoted in Times of Israel, says the woman was spotted striding toward the soldiers who, aware of her approach, instructed her to stop while raising their weapons in her direction, as protocol requires. She complied with the request, and then “threw away a knife that she had in her possession”. She is now under arrest and helping the Shin Bet with their enquiries.
A photo [above] showing the would-be knifer in the presence of Israeli security personnel, and published by the Fatah-controlled Ma'an News Agency, gives the impression she is very young.
