Israel - Another boy-terrorist caught

Told you Gaza wouldn't be the end of it.

A 14-year-old Palestinian was arrested after he was caught carrying three pipe bombs through the Hawara checkpoint south of Nablus Monday afternoon.

The teenager set off the alarm of the metal detector positioned at the crossing, alerting soldiers manning the position.

He was found to be carrying in a bag three pipe bombs that were to be activated by a friction type detonator. The bombs were packed with explosives, as well as shrapnel and glass balls.


The Hawara checkpoint has become a notorious target over the past few months for teenage terrorists trying to smuggle bombs and arms into Israel.

Also on Monday, Palestinian security officials uncovered an unspecified number of rockets that were aimed at the Karni crossing in northern Gaza, in preparation for an apparent attack on IDF soldiers.

The Palestinian security officials informed the IDF of the discovery, but have yet to lay their hands on the combatants who were to launch the attack.

Nothing from the BBC on this yet.
