Israeli security forces cracked a Palestinian terrorist cell that recruited four teenagers for suicide bombings. Lifting a gag order on the case Wednesday, the Shin Bet security service said four minors from the West Bank city of Nablus had been arrested on suspicion of planning to carry out attacks. Also arrested were four terrorists from the Palestinians’ ruling Fatah Party who recruited them. The cell is believed to have received instruction and funds from the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah. Israeli forces have foiled several attempted attacks by minors from Nablus.
