The suspect picked up by police with a knife earlier today in Jerusalem’s Old City was planning to carry out a stabbing attack, police say.
The Palestinian man had aroused the suspicion of police while walking through the Muristan in the Christian Quarter. When he was asked to show identification, he drew the blade.
During his interrogation, the man revealed his intentions to investigators, police say.
He will be brought to a Jerusalem court to have his remand extended tomorrow.
