Police on Tuesday morning arrested three Palestinians on suspicion that they were planning a terror attack in Tel Aviv - and lifted a terror alert imposed on the city earlier in the day. Large numbers of police were carrying out a search in an apartment on Levinski Street in south Tel Aviv - where the three were in hiding - in order to locate explosive devices that may have been in the possession of the suspects. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the situation was back to normal. The police had been on high alert after receiving intelligence that terrorists were planning to carry out a terror attack in the city. In light of the alert, roadblocks were set up on roads leading in and out of the city, and policemen were deployed in large numbers on the streets. Police also sent a helicopter to aid it in its search for suspects. The increased level of security led to heavy traffic in the Gush Dan area.
