Explosives-laden car is seized near Umm al Fahm

A major bombing was averted yesterday when Border Patrolmen on alert on the Green Line near Umm al Fahm spotted a suspicious car trying to make its way across the border. Although the troops spotted the car from a few dozen meters away, the four men inside the car managed to scramble away before the troops arrived, with two suspected of making their way back inside the Palestinian areas and another two suspected of hiding somewhere in the Umm al Fahm area. The car was carrying as much as a half-ton of explosives, as well as cooking gas canisters connected to a detonator, said the police. The troops called in reinforcements from both the police and army, which sent a helicopter to help in the search for the four missing men. Police scoured Umm al Fahm, while IDF troops worked the eastern side of the Green Line, but no arrests had been made as of last night. Full Story
