Three youths will be charged with plotting to carry out a 'price tag' attack in the West Bank last week, police announced on Sunday.

The youths have been remanded in custody for two days by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court ahead the indictment.

The suspects, all minors, were apprehended by Border Police in the Binyamin region near a vehicle which was found to contain flammable liquids, wire cutters, and other tools for breaking and entering into a building.

They will be charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of tools to break into a premises.

Attorney Yitzhak Bam, who is representing the suspects, said, "We've got the capture of three suspects at a distance of 100 meters from the vehicle. For the duration of five days, including two work days, the police still did not... check who is linked [to this], and suddenly the police are running to the prosecution to ask for a statement [ahead of an indictment]."

Judge Gad Ernberg said the police's request for five more days of custody was exaggerated, and ordered the suspects to remain in custody for two more days.
