An attack in Jerusalem was prevented by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) in conjunction with Israel Police, it was announced on Friday. According to the Shin Bet, security forces uncovered an eight-person terror cell of east Jerusalem residents from the neighborhoods of Sur Baher and Sheikh Jarrah, planning to carry out a shooting attack against an IDF base in Jerusalem. The cell, made up of mostly minors and Hamas activists, were arrested in November. The cell members had been arrested throughout 2015 for taking part in riots and had begun planning shooting attacks in Jerusalem while they were in prison, including attacking an IDF base next to the Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus campus.
