Homemade Bomb Discovered at Tapuach junction

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli military bomb sappers detonated a homemade bomb placed at a bus shelter in the northern West Bank.

The device was discovered on Friday morning near the Tapuach junction, located near the West Banks city of Ariel and the Palestinian city of Shechem (Nablus).

It was later determined that the device, an empty can connected to a cell phone, was a fake.

The fake bomb was placed in the same place as a real bomb that went off late last night in what was determined to be a terror attack. No one was injured in that attack.

Also this month, two Palestinians were arrested at a checkpoint at the junction for carrying three pipebombs and a weapon.

Other attempted and successful attacks have occurred at the junction in recent months.

Starting the School Year with a (Real) Blast (+Video)

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Students at the Orot Etzion Girls School in Efrat began their second day of school with a lot of excitement and a bang. A bang and a boom actually.

After someone noticed a very suspicious looking object in the in the school’s lower courtyard, police and army services were called in the deal with the “Hefetz Hashud”.

Hundreds of students were evacuated to the park across the street, and the main entrance to the Zayit neighborhood was shut down as the police bomb disposal experts did their job.

Everyone chipped in to help. Efrat’s mayor, Oded Ravivi, was helping direct traffic, Efrat’s General Manager, Yehuda Shreiger, was coordinating with the security forces, while Uzi, an Orot Etzion school employee, played the violin to entertain the girls while they waited.

It took a half hour, and 2 controlled explosions to do it, but the demolitions experts managed to blow up the suspicious object, without anything more than a loud explosion and some even louder screaming from the girls (see the video below).

Oh. And what was the suspicious object that got blown up?

It turns out that a yoga teacher forgot to take one of her pillows after a class yesterday.

But its always better to be safe than sorry.
