Border Police arrested a 16-year-old Palestinian teen who tried to enter  a military court in the northern West Bank with a pipe bomb.

Forces immediately closed the entrance to the Samaria Military Court, clearing the area before bomb disposal experts arrived, a police spokesman said.

Earlier this month, police arrested a Palestinian man who tried to enter the same military court with two pipe bombs. Security forces used sappers to defuse the explosives, which were found in the suspect’s coat along with a knife.
