A makeshift explosive device was discovered at the entrance to the neighborhood police station in the Samarian settlement of Eli on Thursday evening. The bomb was connected to a sign upon which was written: "Sodomites Out!". The head of the neighborhood police arrived at the station to work with volunteers and discovered the sign. His suspicions were aroused further when he noticed that two fishing lines led from the sign to a plastic bag. Inside the plastic bag was explosive material, as well a second substance that police have yet to identify. Bomb disposal teams destroyed the device in a controlled explosion. As of Thursday night, police had yet to arrest any suspects in the incident.
