Two Palestinians, one of whom was armed with an axe, were detained by troops at an illegal farming outpost in the central West Bank, the military says.

The IDF says the pair planned to carry out a terror attack at the Makouk Farm, close to the Palestinian village of Wadi as-Seeq.

Additional axes and knives were found in their vehicle, according to the IDF.

The pair were handed over to the Shin Bet for further interrogation.

The Makouk Farm outpost was established by far-right activist Neriya Ben Pazi, who has been sanctioned by the United States and the European Union.
