News the HP Doesn't Cover: Stabbing Attack Foiled

About a year after the stabbing of a settler family, a similar attack was foiled by the IDF:

"IDF forces arrested two Palestinians near Elon Moreh Monday, after they were found to be in possession of large knives. Security forces believe the two were planning a stabbing attack in the settlement.

The two suspects were spotted trying to enter Elon Moreh, a West Bank settlement located northeast of Nablus.
During the ensuing pursuit, led by Golani forces, the two fled towards the nearby Palestinian village of Azamut. They were refused shelter by several of the resident and eventually turned over to the IDF by the headmaster of the local school.
Both men, who are residents of the Balata refugee camp in Nablus, were turned over to security forces for interrogation."
But I'm sure they needed the knives because they needed to do some cooking. Or something. No sign of this story on the HP, though.

    Good to hear they were actually denied sanctuary by some of the village residents and turned in by one.
