As Passover holiday attracts masses of tourists to Jerusalem, Israel police reinforces Holy sites, and possibly thwarted catastrophe with Israel security services detaining 3 Palestinians after they said they intended to carry out an attack on Israelis.

Counterterrorism forces and the Shin Bet arrested three Palestinians in Jabel Mukaber in East Jerusalem Monday night. The three suspects, from Nablus, were taken in for questioning for having expressed their intention to carry out a terror attack on Israelis.
None of the suspects had a background posing a security risk or any association with a terror organization. During the search in the apartment in Jabel Mukaber, no weapons were found.
The past few days have seen a significant reinforcement of police deployments, particularly in Jerusalem amid fears that Palestinian terrorists could seek to renew the wave of terror over the Jewish holiday of Passover.
