Two Palestinian teenagers carrying a homemade bomb were caught 500 meters from the entrance to Efrat in Gush Etzion on Saturday night. Security officials are seeking to determine whether the two planned to place the bomb inside the settlement and blow it up or place it near Road 60, the Jerusalem-Hebron highway, and detonate it near security forces or Israeli cars traveling on the road. According to a Central Command officer, the two were arrested by soldiers at the intersection located near the settlement. Sappers were called to detonate the bomb and the two were handed over to security officials for questioning.
