Bombing attack thwarted: Police sappers neutralize 5kg explosive device in Samaria
IDF trackers discovered a 5kg explosive device planted by Muslim terrorists between the Jewish communities of Itamar and Elon Moreh in the Binyamin region.
Additional IDF troops arrived at the scene and blocked the roads for about three hours as police sappers defused the explosives safely.
The thwarted bombing attack comes just three days after the terror attack in which 17-year-old Rina Shnerb was murdered by Muslim terrorists who detonated an explosive device while she was hiking with her family near Dolev.
Her father Rabbi Eitan and brother Dvir were seriously injured in the terror attack.
IDF troops are operating in Arab villages near Ramallah as the manhunt continues for the Muslim terrorists who assisted Rina Shnerb’s murderers.
The Shin Bet, the IDF, and the Israeli police have captured alive two Muslim brother-terrorists who planted the explosive device.
According to Arab reports, at least 25 Muslim terrorists were captured in the Arab villages of Ein Arik, Ein Qiniya and Kobar in the Ramallah area since Friday. Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and PFLP terrorists are among the arrested.
