Not quite making it into the category of suicide bomber, an Arab terrorist was killed when the bomb he was about the throw blew up on him.
On Monday evening, around 11:30 PM, Arabs set up an ambush on the road connecting Negohot and Adorayim in the southern Mount Hebron area, according to a Tazpit report.
The Arabs piled up rocks onto the road hoping an Israeli driver would crash into them, at which point they would apparently attack the driver directly.
An Israeli driver from Negohot saw the pile of rocks just in time, and managed to swerve around them. He then called in the army.
As an IDF jeep arrived, the IDF soldiers heard a loud explosion.
Searching the area, the soldiers discovered the remains of an Arab terrorist who was about to throw a bomb at them.
The explosive detonated prematurely.
