BITA AL FUKA, West Bank, July 5 (UPI) -- A dog used by Israel's army found a gun and supply of ammunition during an operation in the West Bank, military officials said.

The discovery was made early Thursday in a Palestinian village, Bita Al Fuka, near Nablus, Ynetnews reported.

A group of soldiers and a canine unit carried out a raid at the home of a Palestinian suspected of terrorist activities.

As the Israeli soldiers started to leave the building with the suspect in custody, the dog would not follow.

The dog's master then followed the animal to a bedroom where the firearm and ammunition had been hidden inside a mattress.
