Nablus: Explosive teddy bears found in lab

Bank city, finds toys with wires hanging from them, apparently
slated to be used as deadly explosives

A joint paratrooper and Shin Bet force uncovered an explosive lab
in Nablus Friday night. In the lab, the forces found teddy bears
with wires hanging from them, apparently slated to be used as
explosive devices.

The lab was detonated in a controlled manner, and there were no
reports of injuries.

The forces also found in the explosives lab three belts made from
cloth, ready to contain explosives, a hollow coat used for hiding
explosives, and 20 light bulbs and light sockets used for
activating explosives.

Test tubes, a hollow gas tank, hollow pipes, batteries, 40 liters
of hydrogen peroxide and ohms were also found in the lab.

Since the beginning of the year, Israel Defense Forces soldiers
operating in Nablus hit 41 gunmen who were planning, according to
the defense establishment, to hit IDF troops or Israeli citizens.

Some 320 wanted terror suspects were arrested in the West Bank
city and its surroundings since the beginning of the year, most
of them affiliated with Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, Fatah and Hamas.

At the beginning of the year, another explosives lab was
uncovered in the city's casba. The forces located the lab in an
abandoned building after receiving intelligence.

Captain Assaf Cabra, a company commander at the Haruv battalion,
addressed the operation at the time: "We launched a regimental
operation in Nablus, which included searches, seizing weapons and
arrests. We uncovered the explosive lab in the casba, which
contained between 40 to 50 kilograms (88 to 110 pounds) of
explosives for preparing explosive devices."

The defense establishment reported that the terror organizations
were working with greater vigor to carry out terror attacks from
the city, and in the past months many explosive belts were
captured in the area and gunmen were arrested on their way to
carry out attacks in Israel .
