A terror cell comprised of four wanted men was detained during the operation for possession of the explosive devices.


Two weeks ago IDF soldiers detained a youth caught with a pipe bomb at Hawara checkpoint. The young man, who arrived from Nablus, roused the suspicion of the troops and they searched his bag, exposing the bomb.
