A Palestinian terrorist attempted to attack a military court in Samaria on Sunday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.

The terrorist arrived at the courthouse, where he aroused suspicion. A brief investigation revealed a hidden bag near the court that contained a Carlo submachine gun.

The court was briefly shut down. No one was injured in the incident.

The terrorist, 19, from Shechem (Nablus), was arrested and taken for questioning.

This is at least the eighth failed attempt by Palestinians to attack this target, and the fourth attempt in recent weeks. The latest occurred on Wednesday.

Similar incidents occurred earlier this month, twice in December, twice in October, and before that in May.
