NABLUS (Ma'an) -- An explosive device went off in the early morning hours on Sunday near a hitchhike post used by Israeli settlers near the Tappuah/Zaatara military checkpoint south of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

The Hebrew language news website Kikar HaShabat said the explosion caused material damage but no injuries.

Israeli police arrived following the incident and launched an investigate, while army sappers canvassed the area to search for other possible explosives.

Separately, Israeli forces said two improvised pipe explosives were hurled at vehicles belonging to Jewish settlers on the main road near the northern West Bank village of Jit west of Nablus.

No casualties were reported, and Israeli forces subsequently launched a search for the assailants.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces closed the main road between Jit village and Nablus city to Palestinians and started to scan the area.

Israeli troops also closed a main road from Jit village to Qalqiliya to the west for more than an hour after Molotov cocktails were allegedly hurled at settler vehicles.

Palestinian security sources said the Israeli claim was false, claiming instead that Israeli soldiers closed the road because there was a suspected explosive device near a local hitchhiking post for settlers.

The sources said army sappers arrived and neutralized the device.

Mexican immigrants come to the U.S. to work, not steal our homes or kill our children. They don't rule the country and parade around with machine guns. zionism, as a mental activity, looks like a form of mental illness. The comment about Mexican immigrants above is a perfect picture of that. Drawing equivalence where none exists, clinging to a fantasy narrative to justify pillage and murder. It's as dangerous a disease as ebola. It's certainly killed more people.
