(Scroll down for video) Two young Palestinian men were arrested after being caught with explosives as they approached an Israeli military checkpoint, Israel Police said.
The two 20-year-old men aroused the suspicions of border guards when they approached the police checkpoint at the Tapuach Junction on Thursday.
The men were carrying three bombs and several knives. Police also confiscated an altered automatic weapon.
Earlier this week, a Palestinian man was arrested after being caught smuggling himself into Israel to carry out a terror attack, Israel Police said. The man was arrested near Moshav Shokeda, which is about 5 miles from the Gaza border.
According to the initial police investigation, the suspect entered Israel through Kibbutz Alumim, and walked to an area used as a military outpost during Operation Protective Edge, where he was arrested.
The 18-year-old suspect was in possession of two knives, and he did not resist arrest.
