Two Palestinians who were arrested over the deadly terror attack in Elad may have spent time during the weekend inside a school in the central city, footage shows.

A video taken from a classroom in a school on the edge of the city showed a security camera covered up with a bag, and several dismembered pigeons.

Police have not yet commented on the footage, but some Hebrew-language media reports say they suspect the two spent time there during the 60-hour manhunt, and ate pigeons they captured.
