Israeli security continues to stay ahead of terrorists wishing to do the nation's people harm. The Jerusalem Post reports that the Shin Bet foiled a plot by West Bank terrorists to kidnap a settler, as well as carry out a stabbing and steal a soldier's weapon:

Israeli security forces have uncovered a West Bank terror cell that allegedly plotted to kidnap a resident of the Har Bracha settlement in order to gain a bargaining foothold in negotiations to free Palestinian prisoners, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Tuesday.

The suspects, residents of the village of Iraq Burin, near Nablus, were affiliated with the People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and Hamas.

According to the Shin Bet, the pair had already prepared a place to hide the proposed kidnap victim, as well as implements to restrain him.

They also planned a stabbing attack and a plot to steal an IDF soldier's weapon, the Shin Bet said.
