IDF says it located ‘mock’ rocket launcher in northern West Bank

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says troops located a “mock” rocket launcher in the northern West Bank, after footage showed Palestinians apparently attempting to launch a homemade projectile at a nearby settlement.

The IDF says the launcher was found in the town of Nazlet Zeid, close to the settlement of Shaked.

The clip circulating online ostensibly shows a single rocket being launched, although it is likely the attempt was unsuccessful.

Earlier this month, Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar said security forces had foiled attempts by Palestinians in the northern West Bank to manufacture rockets to be launched at Israel.
