Days after deadly Dolev bombing, army says it foiled another IED attack

Israeli security forces find and disarm an improvised explosive device planted along a northern West Bank highway, the army says.

A military tracker spotted a suspicious object along a road near Nablus and called in police sappers to investigate. As a precautionary measure, the highway was closed to traffic, the IDF says.

Upon inspection, the sappers determined that the object was an IED and “neutralized” it, the military says.

This foiled IED attack comes days after a bomb that had been planted next to a natural spring in the central West Bank was triggered by terrorists as an Israeli family was visiting the site, killing the teenage daughter and seriously injuring her father and brother.
