Tel Aviv Police lowered the alert level for the Dan Region on Friday night after special police forces arrested a woman and a man suspected of being involved in a planned suicide terror attack in central Tel Aviv. Towards midnight Saturday, a second man was arrested on suspiscion of involvement in the alleged terror plot, according to Army Radio. The two were reportedly arrested near the beach-side Dan Hotel on Hayarkon Street in central Tel Aviv after the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) passed an intelligence alert to the Israel Police of a possible terrorist who had infiltrated Israel and was currently in central Tel Aviv.

Intelligence indicated the terrorist was headed to an entertainment establishment in Tel Aviv. Friday night is customarily the most popular time for clubbing and entertainment in Tel Aviv, Israel's largest city. Earlier, roadblocks were set up at the entrance to the city, causing traffic jams throughout the Dan region. The operations included hundreds of officers from the Tel Aviv and Central Regions. Hospitals were placed on alert in the Dan area, but the alert was removed when the general terror alert was lowered.
