Terrorist arrested en route to coastal bombing

An Arab terrorist was arrested on Tuesday morning at the Gilboa Crossing in Samaria, located near Jenin.

The terrorist had a pipe bomb and a knife on his possession and was clearly on his way to conduct a terror attack, likely in the urban coastal region where the crossing leads to and where two attacks took place on Monday.

Security forces stationed at the crossing identified the terrorist as he approached the checkpoint in a suspicious manner and proceeded to arrest him, firing in the air to get him to stop and surrender.

Upon investigation, he was found to be carrying a knife and pipe bomb, and admitted to planning a terror attack.
