Two Palestinians were caught on Sunday night at the Beit Iba checkpoint, west of Nablus, carrying a 20-kilogram explosive device. The device was hidden in a jug, inside one of the men's bag. Sappers on the scene detonated the device, and the suspects were taken for interrogation. IDF sources said the device was meant for an attack in Israel.
