Israeli border police and IDF soldiers arrested a Palestinian man in his thirties Monday night after he posted a farewell letter on social media, raising suspicions he was planning to carry out a terror attack.

The man was detained in a joint raid in the Jilazon refugee camp in the West Bank and was brought in for questioning.

In the past there have been cases where similar social media posts were found on the feeds of assailants who carried out attacks against Israeli or Jewish targets.
