During the search of a suspicious Palestinian vehicle, police found a bag filled with knives, stun grenades and materials for producing Molotov cocktails.

The Palestinian vehicle, which was headed to Jerusalem from Nablus, was stopped after police noticed its license plates displayed different sets of numbers.

After stopping the vehicle, police ordered six Palestinian passengers to exit the car and undergo a search. The Palestinians did not have the necessary permits to enter through the checkpoint.
