Security forces uncovered a Hamas terror cell in Hebron planning attacks on Israeli targets, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Monday.

The suspects plotted to carry out a combined explosives and shooting attack on an IDF position in the Hebron area.

The cell was led by a Hamas member in Gaza who had been released under the prisoner exchange deal to free captive soldier Gilad Schalit.

The security suspects "planned to carry out various terror attacks, but were arrested before they could their plans into action," security forces said. A pipe bomb was seized during counter-terror raids in the West Bank against the cell.
