JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police detained a Palestinian woman in the Old City of Jerusalem on Sunday morning over suspicions that she was planning a stabbing attack against Israelis.

Israeli 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.
