A female resident of the Shuafat refugee camp revealed to security forces that a male she is familiar with was heading to Jerusalem to perpetrate a stabbing attack against Jews in the center of the city.
According to the HaMevaser report, the female reported to police in the new station adjacent to Shuafat, telling them her friend got onto a bus carrying a knife in his bag.
Police and border police quickly determined which bus he was on and arrested the suspected without incident. He was indeed carrying a knife.
The suspect, in his 20s, is a resident of Shuafat too.
