The Shin Bet captured two Palestinian terror cells that were responsible for a number of attacks against Israeli security forces in the West Bank, it announced Wednesday.

One of the cells was arrested in early September and consisted of a number of members, ranging in ages from 18 to 22. The cell members opened fire in late August on a Border Police jeep in the village of Shura near Bethlehem.

The second cell operated out of the village of Zuta near Nablus and was behind a bomb attack against an IDF patrol near the village.
