Israeli security forces arrested two Palestinian terror suspects at a checkpoint in eastern Jerusalem on Wednesday morning.
The behavior of the Palestinians raised the suspicion of Border Police officers manning the checkpoint in the suburb of Abu Dis. After searching the car, the officers seized a disassembled M16 rifle, a cartridge, ammunition and binoculars.
The two Palestinians are from Abu Dis and Bethlehem.
A number of Palestinian terror attacks have taken place at Jerusalem checkpoints.
On Monday evening, Border Police Staff Sgt. Asil Sawaed was killed at a checkpoint at the northern entrance of Jerusalem. He boarded a bus that arrived to make a routine security check when a 13-year-old Palestinian boy pulled out a knife and stabbed Sawaed. A civilian guard aboard the bus fired at the Palestinian but hit Sawaed instead.
The boy, identified as Muhammad Bassel Fathi Zalbani was detained unhurt.
