A Border Police force arrested three Palestinian Authority residents Sunday evening at Tapuach Junction in Samaria after finding seven explosive charges in their bags. A knife was also found in their possession and confiscated.
The three suspects are residents of the village of Balata, near Shechem. They were taken to interrogation, where they admitted that they intended to carry out a terror attack at the junction.
Police bomb experts defused the bombs.
Earlier Sunday, Arab terrorists fired at an Egged bus near Hizme in the Binyamin region. No one was hurt.
