Two Palestinian terrorists attempted to blow up a military court in Samaria on Thursday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.

The terrorists arrived at a checkpoint near the Samaria Military Court at Salem, near Shechem (Nablus), where the forces found them to be carrying three explosive charges in their bags.

The terrorists were arrested and taken for questioning.

The court was briefly shut down, while sappers were alerted to the scene and safely dismantled the explosive charges.

No one was injured in the incident.

This is at least the 10th failed attempt by Palestinians to bomb this target and the sixth attempt since the beginning of the year. The latest attempts occurred in May.

Similar incidents occurred in March, February, January, as well as twice in December, twice in October, and in May 2017.
