IDF soldiers catch would-be suicide bomber at Erez Crossing

Israel Defense Forces soldiers foiled a suicide attack Tuesday,
when they prevented a Palestinian man carrying an explosive device in his trousers from passing through the Erez Crossing from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

The belt was different than any the IDF has dealt with before in that 'it was sewn to resemble a pair of underpants,' the spokeswoman said.
