Police officers arrested a Palestinian teenager with a knife in his possession after he attempted to enter Tel Aviv’s Central Bus Station earlier today, police say.

It is not immediately clear if the 14-year-old, who had entered Israel illegally from the West Bank, had planned to carry out an attack with the knife. The teenager was handed over to the Shin Bet security service for questioning, according to police.
