A Palestinian man was arrested on Monday after trying to stab an Israeli police officer with a knife near Makpelah Cave, also known as the Tomb of the Patriarchs, in Hebron on the West Bank. No one was injured in the attack.

-It appears that none of our forces were injured and the attacker was arrested without a single shot being fired, police said in a press release.

Also the day before, there were attempts to stab police officers with a knife in the same area. The police have therefore chosen to increase security. There have been many terrorist attacks and attempted terrorist attacks in the same place over the years.

Makpelah Cave is considered the third holiest site of Judaism after the Temple Mount and the Wailing Wall. The site is believed to contain the tombs of almost all the ancestors and ancestors of Judaism: Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Leah. According to tradition, Rachel is buried in Bethlehem.

Tensions have risen in recent weeks in both Israel and the West Bank. On February 6, there were three terrorist attacks in just twelve hours.
