A Palestinian Arab was stopped at the Crusader’s checkpoint near Hevron, and found to be carrying a knife concealed upon his body.
During questioning at the site, the man claimed he was sent to pass the knife onto another suspect. He submitted a description of the man he claims he was supposed to meet.
The Israeli police notified that entry was made from the Muslim side of the Cave of the Patriarchs. The suspect was arrested with two other suspects that apparently entered with him. They have been taken in for further investigation.
