Police are investigating an attempt by three Palestinian Authority Arabs to stab officers, Sunday evening at a police roadblock at the Mishor Adumim Junction, next to the eastern Jerusalem suburb of Ma'alei Adumim.
The police said the three got out of a taxi at the roadblock. One of them had a knife drawn as they approached the officers who staffed the checkpoint. One of the officers alerted his colleague to the weapon. The officers neutralized the threat and took the terrorists to the Ma'alei Adumim police station as they tried to ascertain the background of the attack.
