Israeli officials confirmed Wednesday that a “large-scale” terror attack was thwarted just hours before citizens were poised to celebrate the Jewish State’s 70-year anniversary.

Israeli guards and soldiers stopped the explosives-packed truck at a northern West Bank border crossing on Independence Day; discovering the bomb-material hidden in the vehicle’s roof, air conditioning system, and engine.

According to the Times of Israel, police managed to diffuse the bomb without incident; preventing a devastating terror attack that could have killed thousands.

Defense Minister Liberman praised the nation’s military and law enforcement; saying their “vigilance and professionalism” led to “the exposure of an explosive device and to the thwarting of a large-scale terror attack on our 70th Independence Day.”

“We will chase down the bastards who planned to harm our celebration,” he wrote on Twitter.
