Bedouin woman accused of planning to stab cops in Jerusalem with scissors

A woman from the Bedouin city of Rahat has been arraigned in court over an attack she allegedly planned against police officers in Jerusalem earlier this month, police say in a statement.

The 31-year-old woman was arrested on April 2 near Damascus Gate in the Jerusalem Old City, after officers saw her keep her hand in her bag for some time, approached her and found scissors.

She later said, according to police, that she had intended to stab a cop with the scissors.

She has been remanded until Monday, by when prosecutors intend to file an indictment at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.
