Around 6:30 p.m., the IDF received a report of suspicious individuals approaching the south side of the fence that encircles Migdal Oz.
Soldiers sent to the area arrested four Palestinians who were driving in a vehicle near the community’s fence. A search of the vehicle uncovered three knives and an improvised weapon.
“The suspects were on their way to carry out a terror attack in the community,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.
On Friday, a border policeman was moderately injured while subduing a female terrorist who attempted to stab him and another Border Police officer stationed near Damascus Gate on the edge of Jerusalem’s Old City.
The incident took place late afternoon Friday, when security personnel noticed a 16-year-old girl acting suspiciously.
The girl approached the Border Police soldiers, drew a knife and attempted to stab one of them. She was apprehended and later told investigators that she had sought to carry out a terror attack.
