Palestinian terror cells uncovered
Israel’s Shin Bet security service said it discovered several Palestinian terror cells operating in the Hebron area.
One of the cells is affiliated with Hamas and another planned to kidnap Jews living in the Kiryat Arba area, according to the Shin Bet. Another cell detonated an explosive near an Israeli car using a cell phone.
Earlier this week, the Shin Bet announced that it had arrested nine Palestinians from the Ramallah area for attempting to kidnap an Israeli woman and her young daughter after surrounding the car in which they were riding.
