Border Police officers arrested two Palestinians near the Tapuah Junction in the West Bank Tuesday, after they found them to be in possession of explosives, firearms and ammunition.

The border policemen initially noticed the two and were suspicious of them, leading to a search of their bags that revealed four pipe bombs, an improvised handgun and ammunition.

Border Police sappers were on the scene disposing of the explosives. The two men were arrested and transferred to the security services for further investigation.
