The Shin Bet said Thursday that they have arrested three Jewish teenagers suspected of carrying out revenge attacks against Arabs following the June 8 terror attack at Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market. In that attack, two Palestinians opened fire at a restaurant, killing four people and wounding several others in one of the deadliest terror attacks in recent months.

The three teenagers were not named, as they are under 18, and their identities are under gag order.

They are accused of torching a vehicle belonging to an Arab-Israeli in the village of Yafia, located near Nazareth, on June 10, just days after the Tel Aviv attack. The Shin Bet also said that the minors had also defaced another vehicle, spray-painting “Price Tag” and “Revenge” on a car belonging to an Arab-Israeli.

The three youths confessed to having planned the attacks for a while. After the Tel Aviv attack, they decided to put their plans into action.
