Vigilant Israeli police prevented a terror attack when they caught yet another Palestinian minor on his way to stab Israelis.
Israeli police arrested a Palestinian minor on Monday as he was in his way to commit a stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The youth, 14, from Shuafat, said he was inspired to commit the attack after hearing that his two friends committed a similar attack on Saturday at the Damascus Gate, during which they stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli.
Both were captured the next day after a broad manhunt.
The would-be-terrorist was scanning the streets for a victim, but was spotted by policemen on patrol who noticed his suspicious behavior. After stopping him and searching his person they found the knife he was carrying, thus thwarting yet another Palestinian terror attack.
Israeli forces have foiled several such attacks in recent months, as Palestinian minors, driven by Palestinian incitement, have been key players in the wave of almost daily terror attacks, which have claimed 29 victims and wounded almost 300.
