Palestinian security officials on Thursday claimed that they foiled an attempt to detonate a car bomb in the Bethlehem region or possibly in Israel. The security officials said they discovered a small car filled with gas canisters that terrorists planned to explode. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the media. An alert snarled traffic at a main entrance to Bethlehem, which is on the outskirts of Jerusalem. The officials said the vehicle was turned over to IDF forces. The Israeli army had no immediate information on the incident.
