Inspection of a Palestinian truck trying to pass through the Reihan crossing near Jenin into Israel discovered a powerful bomb hidden in the roof. It was apparently being smuggled across for staging a major terrorist attack on Israel’s Independence Day Thursday. The bomb was found in a bag weighing 10 kilos along with iron fragments and a digital detonation device. Police sappers are defusing the explosive device after shutting down the crossing and arresting the Palestinian driver. Earlier, a Palestinian from Gaza was detained at the Qalandiya crossing north of Jerusalem in possession of a knife. He admitted he intended to attack Israelis.
