Palestinian driving explosives-laden truck stopped from entering Israel

(JTA) – A Palestinian man was arrested trying to enter Israel through a West Bank checkpoint with a truck carrying “powerful” explosives. On Wednesday, April 18, security guards found the explosives embedded in the truck’s air conditioning system during a routine check of its roof. The vehicle, which was attempting to enter Israel at a northern border crossing, was carrying products marked as “intended for border communities” and agricultural goods for rural communities in central Israel, Haaretz reported.

Police sappers diffused the bomb. Also Wednesday, a kite sent from Gaza to southern Israel carrying a firebomb set fire to an Israeli wheat field for the fifth time in five days.
