Two Palestinian Girls Detained after Attempted Stabbing Attack in Ramla

Two Palestinian girls were detained after attempting to attack an Israeli security guard at a bus station in the central Israeli city of Ramla on Thursday, an Israeli police spokesperson said.

Police spokesperson Luba al-Samri identified the two girls as 13-year-olds from the al-Jawarish area of Ramla.

“The two arrived at the central bus station in Ramle, when the security guard asked them to identify themselves before going into search machine, they stabbed him,” al-Samri said, adding that one of the teens was carrying a school bag.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said a security guard was “lightly” injured. Rosenfeld shared a photo on social media of two kitchen knives scattered amongst school papers at the scene of the incident. The knives appeared to be clean, with no signs of blood.

The attack comes one day after three Palestinian youth were shot dead in front of East Jerusalem’s Damascus gate after shooting dead one 19-year-old Israeli Border Police officer and seriously injuring another.
