Israeli Border Police forces on Sunday arrested two Palestinians who tried to enter the Samaria Military Court while carrying pipe bombs.

The bombs were discovered after the suspects set off the metal detectors outside the court. Authorities blocked the entrance to the court and a police sapper was called to the scene.

Last month, three Palestinians who carried pipe bombs were arrested outside another military court in the West Bank.
