BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinians in the northern occupied West Bank on Sunday for allegedly being in possession of a knife, Israeli police reported.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement on Sunday afternoon that Israeli border police stopped the two Palestinians on a road near the Nablus-area village of Zaatara, searched them and detained them after finding a knife in their possession.

Al-Samri added that one of Palestinians was found to have been observing Israeli soldiers in the area before the second Palestinian arrived at the scene with a knife, allegedly intending to carry out a stabbing attack.
