BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian minor near an Israeli military court in the northern occupied West Bank on Wednesday after allegedly finding pipe bombs in his possession.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement that the young Palestinian tried to enter the Salem military court in the Nablus district, but told Israeli police and army forces stationed at the entrance that he did not have identity documents on him.

The Israeli officers then searched him and found two pipe bombs in his possession, al-Samri said, adding that the Palestinian teen had been taken to security forces headquarters for interrogation, and that investigations were ongoing.

Israeli media reported that border police bomb disposal experts neutralized the pipe bombs on the scene.

Al-Samri said that initial investigations seemed to indicate that the Palestinian youth was planning on detonating the improvised explosives inside the courthouse.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 6,300 Palestinians were detained by Israel in April, 300 of them minors.
