Police arrested a 21-year-old Palestinian man on Saturday on suspicion of having planned to carry out a terror attack in the city of Afula, in the northern district of Israel.

The police had received an anonymous phone-call warning them of the young man's alleged intentions, after which a large number of police units set up road blocks in the area in order to find the suspect. Police said they used a combination of ground units and technology in the search.
