An Arab terrorist tried to stab people by the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron before being shot by nearby IDF and Border Police forces.

The terrorist reportedly approached a Border Police post at an entrance to the site and pulled out a knife before she was shot. No one else was harmed.

The IDF and Border Police arrested ten Arabs in Judea and Samaria overnight. Most of the suspects were Hamas members who were involved in terror attacks and riots. All ten have been taken for questioning.

In addition, the IDF and the Civil Administration mapped out Mahmad Natzer Mahmoud Traira's home in the village of Bnei Naim. Traira stabbed Hallel Yaffa Ariel to death in her Kiryat Arba bed and injured another civilian on Thursday.
