Terror attack averted: IDF troops nabbed Saturday evening a Palestinian in possession of two explosive devices near the Hawara roadblock in the West Bank, south of Nablus.


The bombs were later blown up by sappers in a controlled detonation. The Palestinian terror suspect was taken in for interrogation by security authorities.


Saturday's arrest marks the latest in a string of incidents involving Palestinian terrorists detained in possession of arms.


Last Saturday, Border Guard and Judea and Samaria police forces thwarted a terror attack in the area after detaining two Palestinians armed with four pipe bombs, a handgun and some ammunition. The two suspects disembarked from a taxi at a West Bank junction and aroused the suspicion of policemen on routine operations at the site.


Some three weeks ago, another terrorist was detained in possession of seven improvised explosive devices, three knives and rifle bullets. The suspect was nabbed while going through a West Bank roadblock.


Officials estimated that the Palestinian planned to carry out attacks against Israeli civilians or soldiers during the Passover vacation.
