Border Po­lice thwarted ter­ror­ist at­tack on Jerusalem Day, po­lice reveal

The Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - • By TA­MARA ZIEVE

Po­lice an­nounced Thurs­day that they had thwarted a terror at­tack on Jerusalem Day, which was on Sun­day. Po­lice said that to­gether with the IDF they ar­rested a sus­pect who had ap­proached the Ka­landiya cross­ing.

The man, a Pales­tinian res­i­dent of Nablus in his 30s, who was per­ceived by the se­cu­rity forces to be sus­pi­cious, pre­sented them with an ex­pired per­mit to en­ter Is­rael.

The po­lice spokesman said he had at­tempted to in­fil­trate into Is­rael armed with a knife that he had hid­den in his clothes.

The sus­pect was im­me­di­ately ar­rested for ques­tion­ing by the Border Po­lice, at the end of which he was jailed.

On Thurs­day, a pros­e­cu­tor’s state­ment was filed in the mil­i­tary court in Ofer, ahead of the fil­ing of an in­dict­ment. The court ex­tended the sus­pect’s re­mand by eight days.

Some of the charges that arose from the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the in­ci­dent are at­tempted mur­der, possession of a knife and prepa­ra­tion for an act of terror.
