The IDF arrested Tuesday night a Palestinian Fatah member on his way to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel, the army reported Wednesday. Security forces acting on a tip had set up roadblocks in the area surrounding Nablus. Near the village of Ein Bidan, the suspect, who was in possession of a 6-kg. explosives belt, was arrested. Another man, who the army believed was supposed to drive the would-be bomber to the site of the planned attack, was also arrested, Israel Radio reported. On Wednesday evening, Nahal Brigade soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian carrying a rifle and a handgun who opened fire at the troops. None of the soldiers were reported wounded in the incident. Also on Wednesday, a border police unit arrested an Islamic Jihad fugitive in the village of Elyamun near Jenin.
