On Motzei Shabbos, Israeli security forces arrested three Palestinian women at the Eliyahu Crossing near Qalqilya who were allegedly about to commit a terror attack.
According to reports, the security guards at the checkpoint became suspicious of the suspects after they stopped their car before the checkpoint.
When the guards searched their car, they found a Carlo submachine gun and a suicide note.
In the initial police investigation, it was learned that the women, residents of Shechem in their 20s, were planning on gunning down IDF soldiers at the checkpoint.
The suspects are transferred to the Shin Bet for questioning.
