The IDF closed Iba checkpoint, at the entrance to Nablus, on Monday after a young Palestinian warned troops that he was in possession of an explosive device. When troops saw wires protruding from the Palestinian's bag, they called in Border Police bomb sappers to diffuse the device. The Palestinian said that he intended to transport the bomb outside the city.
