Three Arab terrorists were captured last week while placing a bomb near a security fence outside of Jerusalem.

The three suspects are residents of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Beit Duqu, in Samaria, and ranged in age from 17 to 19.

Last Monday, the three terrorists were captured while planting an explosive device alongside a patrol road running parallel to a security fence outside of Jerusalem.

Border Police officers stationed at a nearby lookout point spotted the terrorists as they set up the makeshift explosive device using a gas tank.

Officers moved in on the terrorists, firing in the air during the arrest. No injuries were reported in the incident.

On Sunday, the three-man cell was indicted on terror charges in a Jerusalem court.

“The [suspects were] members of a terrorist gang which had planned to harm security forces on patrol alongside a security fence,” a police spokesperson said of the arrests.
