An IDF unit arrested Wednesday evening a 17-year-old Palestinian from the village of Kafin, in the northern West Bank, who was smuggling two improvised explosives and a knife.
The teen was nabbed at a 'flying checkpoint' (impromptu) Baqa al-Sharqiya, southwest of Jenin, and is currently undergoing interrogation by security personnel.
Military sources said the youth was arrested along the same road on which Yevgeny Raider, a 28-year-old resident of Hermesh, was murdered a month ago.
Raider was killed in the roadside ambush that also wounded Andre Zeidan, 16.
The two were driving in a rented vehicle from the settlement of Hermesh to Israel, while unbeknownst to them, a white Toyota waiting for them at "Surprise Lane" Junction.
Two or more terrorists exited the car and waited on both side of the road for Israeli motorists.
Last month, a 16-year-old was arrested at the Hawara checkpoint near Nablus after five pipe bombs wrapped in Silicon and studded with nails were found in the crate he was transporting.
