Here's why there are checkpoints

From THE JERUSALEM POST, Dec. 9 2009:

IDF and Border Police forces thwarted a potential terror attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday afternoon, when they discovered six pipe bombs in a 20-year-old Palestinian man's bag.

The man arrived at the Kalandiya checkpoint in northern Jerusalem shortly after 3 p.m. Border Police guards stationed at the checkpoint searched the man after he raised their suspicions.

Two small pipe bombs were found in his bag, but more a thorough search revealed four other devices.

The man, who resides in the West Bank, was arrested and transferred for interrogation. During a preliminary interrogation at the scene, he admitted to planning to carry out an attack inside Jerusalem.

Police sappers neutralized the bombs in a controlled environment.

There were no casualties reported in the incident.
