According to a report by Walla Israeli news agency, the Israeli army and security forces, in direct collaboration with the Palestinian security forces, have managed to foil an attack against Israeli soldiers in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Walla stated that the Palestinian security forces provided Israel intelligence about a pending attack by Palestinian resistance fighters, who reportedly intended to place a large explosive near a military base, in Hebron city.

It added that the information led to an arrest of a young Palestinian man, from the central West Bank district of Salfit, and enabled explosive experts to safely defuse the device.

The army believes that man also has another partner, who has not been detained and interrogated yet.

According to the report, the Palestinian who placed the explosive device was planning to hurl a Molotov cocktail at the military base to lure the soldiers into chasing him so that the other man can remotely detonate the explosive once they are near it.
