CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Following a Molotov cocktail attack on an Israeli vehicle Tuesday night, IDF (Israel Defense Forces) troops picked up three Arabs near Nablus armed with a bomb, weapons and area maps.
Troops picked up the would-be attackers while searching for the perpetrators of the first attack near the Jewish community of Elon Moreh.
The Arabs admitted they were planning to carry out the attack against IDF troops in the area.
In a separate incident, soldiers manning the Hawara checkpoint south of Nablus (biblical Shechem) wounded an Arab man who began throwing sharp objects at them.
After warning shots fired in the air failed to stop him, troops aimed at his lower extremities. The man was evacuated to an Israeli hospital for treatment.
Troops arrested six Arabs suspected of terror activities Tuesday night, all of whom were detained for questioning.
