Following the incident, the terrorist was interrogated and the entrance to the courthouse was closed, while bomb squad technicians moved to neutralize the explosives in a secure location. The terrorist is believed to be a member of a pipe-bomb production ring in Jenin.

In October, a Palestinian terrorist arrived at the entrance to the same Samaria courthouse with a pipe bomb strapped to his body.

Sunday’s incident came after an Israeli Border Police officer was moderately wounded last Friday after being stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist who was wearing a suicide vest amid “day of rage” clashes in Ramallah.
