(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Two Palestinian men, one of them armed with a knife, were arrested by Israeli security forces on Tuesday near the Judean community of Tekoa, located south of Jerusalem.

During initial questioning, the men admitted they were planning to conduct a terrorist attack in Tekoa. Security forces had been searching for the men, both residents of the Hebron area, since Friday, after receiving information that they were seeking to carry out a terrorist attack.

One of the detained suspects is a relative of Amer Abu Aysha, who took part in the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens in Gush Etzion in June. Abu Aysha was killed in a shootout with security forces in Hebron in September.
