The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Israel police arrested suspects in connection with the bombing of the Dan bus in Tel Aviv Wednesday, several hours after the device exploded, the Shin Bet revealed on Thursday evening.

The terror attack wounded 29 Israelis. The cell's members mostly came from Beit Lakia, near Ramallah, the Shin Bet announced in a statement. In their preliminary interrogation, the cell's members identified with Hamas and Islamic Jihad said they had agreed to commit an act of terrorism, prepared the explosive device and purchased cellular phones to detonate it by remote control.

They also said one of the cell's members was an Arab-Israeli from the town of Taibeh, originally also from Beit Lakia, who received Israeli citizenship due to the Israeli law allowing Palestinians married to Israeli Arabs to receive Israeli ID cards.
