The Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) arrested three members of a terror cell responsible for carrying out a shooting attack near Hebron in September in which two Israelis were injured. The Shin Bet lifted a ban on publishing information on the arrests on Monday. The three were arrested last month.
The three suspects are part of the Abu Musa group, that broke away from Fatah in the 1980s. They told investigators that they were given $25,000 with which to buy weapons and they planned on carrying out more attacks.
The three were charged in the military court in Ofer.
