IDF forces located an explosives laboratory in the Abu Sneinah neighborhood in Hebron on Saturday morning. An explosion had rocked the laboratory on Friday night, apparently as a result of a work accident in which three Palestinians unintentionally detonated an explosive device that they were preparing to be used in an attack on IDF forces in the city. The three Palestinians were wounded in the explosion and evacuated to a local hospital. Security forces found several pipe bombs and other explosive devices in the laboratory, which was blown up by Border Police sappers later in the morning.
