IDF soldiers from the Herub Brigade confiscated two explosive belts late Saturday night near Nablus. Forces stopped two cars at a checkpoint and arrested five Palestinians who attempted to throw a bag containing explosives. One of the suspects, a Palestinian woman, was apparently on her way to perpetrate a suicide attack in one of the cities in central Israel. The explosive belts were detonated safely. As a result of the attempt, the terror warning level was raised in Judea and Samaria and the surrounding area.
