In a joint Israel Defense Forces and Israel Security Agency operation overnight in Nablus, forces uncovered a 10kg explosive belt which was intended for use in a suicide bombing in the coming days.

Abdullah Haled Mahmad Qatawi and Jihad Yusef Shamah Dukan, 17, were closely connected with the terror infrastructure in Nablus, with the help of which they planned to carry out the attack. Following their arrest the two were questioned by the security forces and led them to the location of the explosive belt. The belt was detonated by the forces in a controlled environment and the two were taken for questioning.

The planned suicide bombing demonstrates the continued effort of terror organizations to carry out attacks against Israeli civilians, especially during the Jewish holidays.
