Security forces arrested several Palestinians during October and November on suspicion of planning to carry out a suicide bomb attack in the Tel Aviv region, the Shin Bet announced on Monday.

The suspects include a woman from Jenin, named by security forces as Yasmin Sha'aban, and four residents of the Tul Karem areas. The suspected terror operatives were in touch with an operative from Gaza, who helped instruct them on how to assemble explosives, according to the investigation.

"According to the plot that was hatched, Sha'aban was the designated suicide bomber. She was supposed to carry out the attack with an explosives belt hidden in her cloths while disguised as a pregnant Jewish woman," the Shin Bet said.
