Today (Monday), the Samaria Military Court indicted five prisoners who were arrested for planning to carry out attacks against security forces in Judea and Samaria and inside Israel.

Among other attacks, the members of the cell planted three bombs on the road to Mount Ebal, near a military base. The bombs were built by members of the cell using a sophisticated technology allowing them to be remotely detonated by mobile phones.

When the cell noticed security forces closing in on their position, some members began detonating the explosives one by one. The explosives detonated mere meters from military forces arriving on the scene. Miraculously there were no casualties.
