The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed Sunday that it arrested a five-member Hamas terrorist cell in Jerusalem for firebomb attacks on security officers at the Temple Mount last month. Nine policemen suffered injuries.

The arrests were kept under wraps until Sunday, when security officials announced that indictments were filed against the cell a week ago.

One of the terrorists is a minor and the others were in their young 20s. The terrorists, one of whom has a previous record of terror at the holy site, confessed that they bought gasoline and several bottles of juice to make the Molotov cocktails and used the unidentified minor to smuggle the material into the Temple Mount.

They then attacked security forces after clashes began with rock-throwing Arabs. One of the firebombs set a policeman on fire, but he was not seriously hurt.
