Palestinians attempting to smuggle weapons got particularly creative on Saturday as checkpoint inspectors discovered a handgun, magazines, and bullets hidden in snack bags in a car, according to the Defense Ministry.
The weapons were hidden inside bags of Bamba, chips, and other snacks after a vehicle attempting to pass through the Trans-Samaria Checkpoint near Kalkilya raised the suspicions of inspectors at the checkpoint.
Palestinians arrested, weapons seized
The two Palestinians traveling in the car and the weapons were transferred to security forces for further handling.
It is unclear if the Palestinians were smuggling weapons to sell or attempting to carry out an attack.
