JERUSALEM, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Israeli security agents found explosives hidden inside a computer monitor to be used in a suicide attack, the Jerusalem Post reported Monday.

The authorities believe the explosives were to be used for an attack in Tel Aviv.

Israeli security forces near Kafr A-Zawiya, where the Elkana settlement is, retrieved the explosives and computer Sunday acting on intelligence information received from a Palestinian captured last week in Nablus, the Post said.

Ahmed Ibrahim Ashker, 18, a fugitive arrested by security forces on Jan. 21, was to have perpetrated the attack allegedly planned by Hisham Abu Hamdan, 22, the head of the Fatah Tanzim in the Balata refugee camp, near Nablus.

Ashker told investigators he was recruited two months ago by one of Hamdan's cell members and the day before his arrest, he set out for Tel Aviv accompanied by other cell members who were supposed to have helped him cross into Israel.
