2012-01-08 18:27

Jerusalem - Four Palestinian men were detained on Sunday after Israeli troops at a West Bank checkpoint discovered 12 pipe bombs, a knife and a gun in their possession, an Israeli police spokesperson said.

"Four Palestinians were arrested at the Salem checkpoint. They had a commando knife, a pistol and 12 explosives. They were arrested and taken for questioning and the investigation is continuing," spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told AFP.

Salem checkpoint is near the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Israeli media said the men were carrying pipe bombs strapped to their bodies and inside bags. The Ynet news website said the checkpoint was closed after the incident.

There was no immediate information on whether the men belonged to a militant organisation or were planning an attack.

      Correction "Freedom fighter state" Let us hope they do get membership to the UN. The sooner the better.

      The UN made that mistake once and the Americans simply withdrew funds for that organisation. A lesson learnt for the UN. Support terrorist states and we withdraw funding.

      They are not terrorists, they are fighting for control of their own country.

      @shark..The Americans greatest achievement is their export of Economic Terrorism. So if you looking for a terrorist state look no further than the USA.

      I see. So Americans are exporting suicide bombers. My my, you are a fountain of knowlege. The CIA has been looking in all the wrong places for yeeeeears now.

      Doesnt make sense, who would go through a check point loaded with such amunition...

      @shark. I don't think the USA is exporting suicide bombers. Not sure where you get your information. As for the CIA they are one of the key organs the USA use to create most of the disinformation we read in their vain attempt to convince you and me that they are defenders of the "Free World".

      They should put them in a cell with the pipe bombs and detonate them.
