BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli security agency Shin Bet said Monday that it arrested a group of 15 Palestinians in recent months in the Beit Ur al-Tahta village near Ramallah, Israeli media reported.

They are suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails and rocks at vehicles driving on Route 443 near the village, which caused a number of injuries.

The suspects were discovered during an investigation into an alleged Hamas cell that was accused of planning to plant a bomb on the same road, Hebrew-language daily Maariv reported.

Three of the suspects were said to have admitted to their involvement in the cell, including Musab Ibrahim Badran, 27, who allegedly led the group, Maariv reported.
