On Thursday morning, security personnel thwarted, b’chasdei Shamayim, a potential terror attack at the Shomron Military Court, Salem, in the Menasheh region.

Security forces arrested two Arabs, 18 and 14 years of age, at the court, and three explosive devices were found in their possession, apparently intended to be used.

The military court in Shomron has been a target for attacks of this nature. In February, three Arabs were arrested by Border Police near the entrance to the courthouse with three pipe bombs. The day before, an Arab who had hidden a pipe bomb in his clothes at the entrance to the courthouse was arrested.

In December 2017, a 16-year-old terrorist from Jenin was arrested in the same manner. Forces managed to locate a bomb that was neutralized later on. A few days earlier, a 17-year-old terrorist from Jenin was arrested after he hid two explosive devices in his clothes.
