Security forces, including special police units and the Shin Bet, arrested three people on Tuesday morning, on suspicion of planning a terror attack.

The three Arab men were caught in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, as they were leaving for their intended attack.

The group came from the area around Shechem, where three other young terrorists were caught about two weeks ago. Only a few days ago, another terror cell planning to kidnap Jews was caught.

Security forces are staying on high alert around Samaria out of suspicion that terror organizations will try to attack Jewish targets during the holiday.

Holiday periods, both Jewish and Muslim, are often a time for increased terror activity.
