Security personnel discovered a pipe bomb Monday in an Israel Electric Company installation located in a Jewish town in Judea.

Sappers from the police bomb squad unit were sent to dismantle the device, which was found in an IEC installation in the town of Beitar Illit, located barely six miles (10 kilometers) south of Jerusalem.

Police have opened an investigation into the incident, the second terror attempt in less than a week.

Last Wednesday a resident of the town was stabbed in the neck by a Palestinian Authority Arab in a deadly attempted terrorist attack.

A Magen David Adom emergency medical team was called to the scene by passersby who witnessed the attack and rushed to rescue the victim.

The attacker fled but was caught by security forces a short time later.
