Police said they foiled a possible terror attack after detecting an explosive device at a checkpoint to east Jerusalem's Issawiya neighborhood, adjacent to the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus.

During operational sweeps of the capital, a police canine unit arrived to Issawiya and located the suspicious package that encased a pipe bomb.

Police sappers were called to the scene to neutralize the explosive device after confirming the nature of the object.
