Police say undercover officers arrested a terror suspect in the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank at dawn.

During the arrest, an explosive device was found hidden in the suspect’s scooter near his home, police say.

The Palestinian man has been taken to the Shin Bet security agency for further questioning.

The arrest comes as part of Operation Breakwater — targeting individuals suspected of planning future attacks, as well as some thought to be tied to recent deadly attacks in Israel.
