On Tuesday afternoon, a 17-year-old Palestinian Arab arrived at the Gilboa pedestrian crossing in Samaria.

When the youth was asked to transfer his bag for a security check, the security examiner identified an object suspected of being a bomb.

The security guards at the crossing seized the suspect and arrested him for interrogation.

The crossing was evacuated of people and a police sapper was summoned to the scene.
