Terrorists with Bombs Caught at Tapuach Junction
The official IDF Blog has published a list of five bombing attempts foiled by the IDF in just the past four weeks. Under the heading "The 2012 Bombing Attacks You Never Heard Of," it lists the following:
April 11: IDF forces stopped a would-be bomber over Passover at a checkpoint east of Shechem, in northern Samaria. The terrorist was carrying improvised explosive devices, three knives and 50 bullets.
April 21: 2 Palestinian Authority teens carrying bombs and guns were nabbed by Israeli forces. They were apprehended near Tapuach Junction with 5 pipe bombs, a gun, and ammo.
April 24: IDF forces uncovered 4 improvised bombs on two Arabs at a crossing north of Jericho. The bombs were found in the men’s bags and detonated safely.
April 28: IDF forces nabbed 2 terrorists with 4 pipe bombs as they were trying to smuggle explosives through a checkpoint in northern Samaria.
May 7: Israeli forces arrested 17-year-old Palestinian for carrying 3 pipe bombs. The teen was detained near Tapuach junction.
Israel comes under intense international scrutiny over its military presence in Judea and Samaria. The reason for this presence – the Arab terrorist infrastructure – receives much less coverage.
