Officer Recalls Apprehension of Suicide Bomber


Sgt S., one of the two Border Police officers who apprehended an Arab terrorist wearing an explosive belt at the Tapuach Junction in Samaria, recalled what happened in a conversation with his superiors on Friday afternoon.

"When I recognized the terrorist approaching the checkpoint suspiciously, I had a feeling that this was an unusual incident. We called on him to stop and take off the jacket, and then I recognized the black box stuck to his stomach and immediately realized it was a suicide bomber. No doubt a major disaster was averted, and the officers are always prepared for these types of situations."
