A bomb disposal unit called to the scene confirmed that the device was an explosive. The site was sealed and the device was detonated.


Sergeant Major Haim Sabag, commander of Jerusalem Border Police's canine unit, said: "We are prepared for scenarios exactly like this. It's possible that the dog locating the device before it was used against security forces saved lives."
