A Palestinian teenager approximately 15-years-old was detained by security forces late Friday morning after troops discovered that he was carrying two bombs. The youth aroused the suspicions of the soldiers at the Hawara checkpoint, near Nablus, because he wore a heavy jacket despite the unseasonably warm weather. Upon inspection, soldiers discovered that he bore on his person two pipe bombs hidden in cans, ready for use. The youth said that he had been sent to pass the bombs to Palestinian terrorists waiting on the opposite side of the checkpoint.
