IDF Spokesman

On Wednesday afternoon (March 24), a 14-year-old Palestinian boy, Hussam Abdu, wearing an explosive belt was intercepted at the Hawara roadblock, south of Nablus.
Sappers used a remote-controlled robot to pass scissors to the boy so that he could cut the explosive belt off his body, and then safely detonated it in a controlled explosion.

Abdu, from Nablus, said that he received NIS 100 to carry out a suicide attack. A Tanzim cell from the Balata refugee camp in Nablus claimed responsibility for sending the boy.
