Security forces arrest two Palestinians over alleged Netanya terror plot

Israeli security forces on Tuesday arrested two Palestinians in the central city of Netanya on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack.

The suspects, who were in Israel illegally, were taken into custody following a manhunt near the city’s main market, according to police.

A police sapper was deployed to the scene to rule out the presence of explosives, and authorities confiscated a knife, although its source was unclear.

The suspects were handed over to the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) for questioning.

No additional details about the alleged plot were provided.
