Over the past few weeks, terrorists have been throwing improvised explosive devices onto the tunnel road that connects Gush Etzion with Jerusalem. The bombers were throwing the bombs from Beit Jala, according to the IDF.
There were no injuries or damage from the attacks.
The IDF and Shabak began an intelligence operation to identify and capture the terrorists, and discovered that the cell had split up and was hiding in a number of villages. Troops were sent into Kafr Ramon, Deheishe and Elazah, and arrested the five-member terror cell and also confiscated their vehicles.
The terrorists confessed to the attacks.
