Israeli authorities captured five terrorists on their way to commit a terror attack east of Jerusalem, Thursday afternoon (10th).
The five terrorists, all residents of the Hebron region in Judea, were arrested in al-Eizariya a PA-city east of Jerusalem.
The arrest was carried out by Border Police in a joint operation with Israeli Police. Shortly before the arrest, the Shin Bet internal security agency reportedly received concrete information regarding an attack planned by the terror cell.
According to security officials, the terror cell was a “ticking time-bomb,” and the arrest averted an imminent attack.
