The Shin Bet announced Thursday that it has arrested a terror cell who allegedly plotted to attack Jews praying at Joseph's Tomb in Nablus with explosive devices and guns.

According to the Shin Bet, who arrested the cell in conjunction with the IDF, the terrorists' activities were directed by an Islamic Jihad operative in the Gaza Strip.

The Islamic Jihad operative, Muhammad Darwish, was responsible for arming the cell to aid them in carrying out the attack, the Shin Bet stated.
