Fighters from the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Police’s counterterrorist YAMAM force on Sunday evening took action, following information received from the Shin Bet, on Highway 6 near the Nachshonim junction and arrested a suspect with intentions to carry out terrorist activity.

The suspect, an illegal alien, was taken for questioning by the Shin Bet. The highway, which was closed following the arrest, was reopened to traffic.
