Terror Attack Foiled at Tapuach Checkpoint

Soldiers at the Tapuach checkpoint in Samaria have arrested a Palestinian Authority resident who had planned to commit an attack. The would-be attacker approached the checkpoint late Wednesday morning. When he was around 40 meters away, he began to show signs of stress. Soldiers noticed that he was carrying a bag, which caused them to suspect he may have a bomb. The man was ordered to stop and remove some items of clothing, a process which revealed a knife.
