Police have arrested three Israelis suspected of plotting to carry out a revenge attack against Arabs, in response to Sunday's deadly terror attack in Jerusalem.

The case is being investigated by the Shin Bet and the Judea and Samaria District Police. The suspects are from central Israel, and at least one of them is a minor.

Itamar Ben Gvir, a lawyer and far-right activist who is representing one of the suspects, said the Shin Bet was "putting all of its energy into persecuting Jewish teens instead of dealing with Arab terrorism."
