Israeli security continues to thwart those who would carry out terrorist attacks against the Jewish state and its people. The Jerusalem Post reports that four terrorists - including two intelligence officers with the Palestinian Authority - have been arrested for dealing illegal arms:

Security forces on Sunday night arrested four Palestinians, including two Palestinian Authority intelligence personnel, suspected of weapons manufacturing and dealing in the West Bank, the Shin Bet announced Monday.

As part of the operation in the village of Orif near Nablus, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), IDF forces and police forces seized a cache of improvised weapons and ammunition in addition to four lathes used to make arms...

According to the Shin Bet, the weapons produced by the cell were sold in various places across the West Bank.
