Security forces arrested two Beduin-Israeli brothers earlier this month on suspicion of preparing a series of deadly terrorist attacks in Israel, police and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced on Sunday.
The brothers, from the Negev, confessed to the terror plots, holdings contacts with terrorist handlers in Gaza and abroad, preparing explosives and trying to build rockets, security forces added.
Additionally, two Jewish Israelis – one of them an IDF soldier – are under arrest on suspicion of providing the suspects with weapons stolen from the IDF in exchange for narcotics. Some of the weapons were later used to prepare explosives.
