Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley discovered seven homemade bombs on the body of a Palestinian man.

The Palestinian, 19, from Nablus, attempted to cross the checkpoint Wednesday with the bombs as well as several knives, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

He planned to attack either Israeli citizens or soldiers during the intermediate days of Passover, which is a busy vacation season in Israel.

He was searched at the checkpoint after acting suspiciously, Ynet reported. He also had set off the metal detector.

It is at least the third time in recent months that a Palestinian planning to carry out a terrorist attack has been caught at the same checkpoint.
