Border police arrested four Palestinians at the Salem Border Crossing near Jenin on Sunday, after they were found to be carrying 12 pipe bombs in their possession.

Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld added that the arrests were made after police became suspicious of the conduct of the Palestinians. A home-made pistol was also found in their possession.

The suspects were being interrogated by security forces, seeking to understand where they planned on using the explosives.
