While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

A female terrorist approached a member of the Border Police with a knife at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Wednesday morning and attempted to carry out a stabbing attack.

The Police Spokesperson's Unit reported that the terrorist approached the officer and was questioned. After retrieving a knife from her bag, a stand-off occurred with police officers who rushed to the scene.

Only when she charged toward the police was the terrorist neutralized after a police officer opened fire. She was then evacuated to Jerusalem's Sha'are Tzedek hospital in critical condition.

Police reported that the terrorist is in her 30's and a resident of Idhna, a Palestinian town in the southern West Bank located 13 km. from Hebron.

There were no civilian or police injuries reported. This is the 15th attempted stabbing attack at the Cave of the Patriarchs since the beginning of the year, police stated.

The area around the Cave of the Patriarchs was closed off and security was heightened.
