The Israeli military said it thwarted a terror attack near Jerusalem on Monday when it uncovered a knife concealed in a Pringles container being held by a woman.

The incident took place at the Qalandiya checkpoint, north of the Israeli capital.

“An IDF soldier just found this knife….in a box of @Pringles,” the IDF said in a tweet. “Our intel says the woman carrying it intended use it for a stabbing attack. Our soldiers at the Qalandiya security crossing stopped her from doing so.”

“This is why security checks are necessary,” the IDF concluded.

Palestinian terrorists have perpetrated hundreds of stabbing attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in recent years.
