(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Israel military and Shin Bet security agency forces arrested a five-man terror cell in Nablus two months ago for shooting at Israeli vehicles near Kedumim in Samaria, and in a separate incident throwing an explosive device at another car, according to a Shin Bet press release cleared for publication Monday.

The Shin Bet also cited a separate operation in which security forces uncovered a three-member terrorist cell belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which attacked and threw a stun grenade at Israeli troops in February. During the arrest operation for the PFLP cell, a firefight broke out and one of the terror suspects was killed.
