Terror Attack Thwarted at Samaria Crossing


gilboa terror attackAn Arab terrorist was arrested on Tuesday morning at the Gilboa Crossing in Samaria, located near Jenin, Ari Yashar reports for Arutz Sheva.

The terrorist had a pipe bomb and a knife on his possession and was clearly on his way to conduct a terror attack, likely in the urban coastal region where the crossing leads to and where two attacks took place on Monday, Yashar reports.

Gilboa Crossing has been active recently; on Shabbos, an Arab terrorist tried to stab a security officer at the checkpoint. An investigation of the incident showed the terrorist apparently hid near the taxi stand located adjacent to the entrance to the security check area for goods being shipped to and from sovereign Israeli territory. A security guard who was checking the crossing before opening it caught sight of the terrorist running towards him with a drawn knife.
