Palestinian security forces on Sunday gave the IDF an explosive belt found in the West Bank town of Salfit.
Palestinian sources said that belt contained eight kilograms of TNT and that it was ready for detonation.
A Hamas operative arrested by the Palestinian Authority some two weeks ago led the security forces to the belt's hiding place.
A Palestinian official quoted by Israel Radio said the explosive belt was prepared by Samar Dawarhaka, a Hamas operative killed by the IDF some four years ago.
