Palestinian gunmanTwo Palestinians who were detained on Saturday in the Hawara area near Nablus were carrying three makeshift grenades and three Molotov cocktails. The terrorists managed to hurl two additional firebombs at an IDF post before being apprehended by soldiers from the Lavi Battalion.

There were no reports of injury, but the army post was damaged. The terrorists were transferred to the custody of the Shin Bet security service for further interrogation.

While searching the terrorists, the IDF soldiers found a letter saying, “The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claim full responsibility for the bombing at the Elon Moreh settlement.

“We are announcing the operation before it has been carried out. In case the operation fails, other, bigger operations will be carried out every minute, every hour from this day forward,” the letter read.
