Israeli-police-detain-Palestinian-woman-suspected-of-planning-stab-attackIsraeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement on Sunday that a 36-year-old Palestinian woman was detained after reportedly making “remarks” about plans to carry out a stabbing attack.

The Palestinian woman was taken in for questioning after Israeli forces found two knives in her home next to a copy of the Quran, al-Samri added.

Israeli forces have detained a number of Palestinians for allegedly being in possession of knives in the past year following a wave of unrest which has left some 238 Palestinians killed by Israelis and 34 Israelis killed by Palestinians since October 2015.
