A high-ranking officer described the operation to Haaretz as “a kind of thorough cleaning,” adding that “the IDF concentrated its activity on Nablus, which served in the past as the terrorism capital, and will continue to do so over the next few days.”
#AceWorldNews – ISRAEL (West Bank) – May 30 – Israeli security forces in the West Bank caught a Palestinian wearing an explosive belt on Friday, officials said.
Border police near the Palestinian city of Nablus had been suspicious of the man who was wearing a coat on a hot spring day, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
“The forces stopped him and asked the suspect to remove his clothes.
He was wearing a bomb-belt,” Reuters quoted Rosenfeld as saying.
The man, believed to be in his 20’s, was in a sensitive area in the West Bank, which has a number of Jewish settlements and a large security presence.
