Rachel's Tomb, the grave site of the Biblical matriarch, has become a fortress due to ongoing attacks on Jews by Arab terrorists.

Border Police officers located two pipe bombs thrown in the vicinity of Rachel’s Tomb at the northern entrance to Bethlehem early Tuesday afternoon.

The pipe bombs, thrown from the Palestinian Authority side of the security fence at the site, failed to explode. A police sapper neutralized the devices.
