Israel Police’s elite Etgar unit was operating in the PA (Palestinian Authority) village of Yata, in the Southern Chevron Hills area. Policemen opened a large shipping container found in the village, discovering large boulders inside.

While it is not explained exactly why, something prompted them to have the boulders removed and to their surprise, they found an Isuzu pickup truck with armor plating on it, leading authorities to believe the vehicle was being prepared for use in some kind of terrorist attack.

The pickup was outfitted with steel plating welded around it, similar to the plating used on buses to make them bullet-resistant.

Authorities also recovered tens of stolen vehicles and a large quantity of car parts, presumably from stolen vehicles already dismantled.
