Three people were arrested after posting a video on social media about their plans to harm anti-government protesters in Jerusalem last night, police say.

Police say they worked together with the Shin Bet to foil the plot after the individuals posted a video of themselves driving in a car to Jerusalem with eggs, knives and a gun announcing their plans to attack demonstrators.

Police captured the suspects and seized the gun, which was legally licensed. The three people arrested were ages 25, 26 and 17, residents of Yavne and the surrounding area.
