Police on Wednesday night arrested three Palestinians found carrying large knives in Afula.
Following reports to police of three suspicious figures in the northern Israeli city, officers located the three young men who fit the description.
During searches, 23-centimeter-long butcher knives were found on the three residents of the West Bank city Jenin.
Police arrested the suspects, two of whom were minors and one adult.
Security forces were investigating the three.
The incident came as Israel has faced three months of increased Palestinian terror attacks against civilians and security forces.
