Israel has not experienced suicide bombers in the past few years, but this past Friday, an attempt was thwarted. Israeli Security caught a Palestinian man wearing an explosive belt and arrested him.
Guards near the Palestinian city of Nablus were suspicious of a man who was wearing a coat on a hot day. They stopped him and immediately the man dropped to the ground and exposed the explosive belt of 12 pipes of steel.
Some military analysts have warned that there could be uprisings following the failed peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last month.
Please pray for the safety of those living in Israel and that attempts to harm them would be thwarted, just as this one.
