A pair of Palestinians dressed in army uniforms tried to infiltrate a Jewish settlement in the northern West Bank on Sunday, the IDF said.

One of the suspects, who was detained by the troops near Itamar, had a pair of binoculars, but no weapons.

Troops were interrogating the suspect who was caught in order to determine whether the pair had been attempting to carry out a terror attack or had criminal motive, Hadashot TV news reported.

Soldiers were scouring the area between the settlement and the Palestinian village of Beit Furik for the second suspect, the army said.
