Israeli Border Police arrested a Palestinian suspect on Sunday after he reportedly refused a security check and attacked an officer at the Meoras Hamachpela in Chevron. Police found a knife on the suspect. No casualties were reported.

In response to the attack, Chevron Jewish Community spokesman Yishai Fleisher said, “We continue to be vigilant against terror, and look forward to Israeli sovereignty over the Meoras Hamachpela, which will fully normalize the Jewish presence here and keep the tomb open for millions of tourists from around the world who want to connect to (their) heritage in safety and security.
