West Bank police cancel high alert over terror bid in Israel
Morning police dragnet sought possible terrorist bound for Jerusalem or center; traffic jams reported in center.
Police in the West Bank were placed on high alert early Wednesday, after receiving reports that a terrorist might attempt to enter Israel to carry out an attack either in Jerusalem or in the center of the country, but the alert was cancelled after more than an hour.
Police roadblocks and other measures caused morning traffic jams on commuter routes leading from the West Bank into Israel.
It was not immediately clear why the alert was declared, or why it was rescinded.
