Five Palestinians were arrested for throwing improvised explosive devices at a tunnel on the road leading to Jerusalem from the village of Beit Jala.
The cell scattered after throwing the explosives, which did not cause any casualties or damage.
IDF forces from the Etzion and Binyamin regional brigades, as well as from the covert Duvdevan Unit worked together with the Shin Bet and Border Police to carry out the arrests in Kfar Ramon and the Dheisheh and Elazah refugee camps.
The IDF also confiscated the vehicles used in the attacks.
The arrested individuals admitted to carrying out the attacks and indictments will be filed against them.
