The two Palestinians arrested at a checkpoint on Highway 5 for allegedly plotting a terror attack were driving in a car with Palestinian license plates, which raised the suspicions of security forces, the police say.
A gas tank and explosives are found in the vehicle.
Police are at the site, and the area is closed off to traffic.
One of the suspects confesses the two were on their way to perpetrate a terror attack, according to Ynet.
