People who like the idea that terrorist attacks against Israelis have receded into the past are advised to stop reading now and go to another page:
Terror attack in Jerusalem foiled | Border police arrest 6 suspects attempting to enter Jerusalem with explosives and knives | Border police units and police arrest 6 suspects in a vehicle at the Mizmorah crossing, one of the crossings in the outskirts of Jerusalem. The suspects from Nablus attempted to make their way into Jerusalem and were stopped at the crossing before entering. The vehicle was searched and a bag was found containing knives, stun grenades and Molotov cocktails, including flammable materials. The crossing was closed and a bomb disposal expert was called in the area to secure the scene. All of the suspects were transferred to the Border Police units for questioning. The units prevented an attack from taking place and police and border police operations continue in all areas. ["Terror attack in Jerusalem foiled", Israel National News, July 4, 2017]
(We would spell the name of the checkpoint Mizmoriah - מחסום מזמוריה. It's adjacent to the thriving Jerusalem neighbourhood of Har Homa on Jerusalem's south side.)

Thank goodness for Israel's security checkpoints and alert security personnel.
