The IDF and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) thwarted a Hamas and Islamic Jihad planned terror attack and kidnapping in the Hebron area, the Shin Bet revealed on Tuesday.

The Shin Bet said that a Hamas cell, comprising nine residents of the Bani Naim village, planned to murder an Israeli in the Jewish agricultural area near the village and to hide the body and demand the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the corpse.  

The IDF and Shin Bet arrested the suspects, who were found to be in possession of an improvised explosive device and instructions for making explosives.
