Israeli security forces are searching for suspects after two bomb attacks against Israeli civilian targets in Samaria on Sunday.

No injuries or fatalities were reported in either of the incidents.

In the first, an explosive device was detonated at a bus station at the Rechelim Junction, a major route in the area. Police sappers were called in to search for further explosive devices.

In a separate incident, two pipe bombs were thrown at cars at the Jeet Junction, near Kdumim. The area was littered by screws used as part of the bombs.

The attacks were among several others perpetrated in the past few days. On Saturday night, terrorists threw a Molotov cocktail at “Beit Meyuhas,” an historical Jewish home in the City of David area, just south of Jerusalem’s Old City. A 45-year-old Israeli man was hospitalized with light wounds, after suffering first and second-degree burns to his head.
