A joint statement by Israel's army, police and Shin Bet security service said a cell working for Iran and receiving guidance from a person residing in Jordan had been arrested.

The statement added that the mission, the cell was to assassinate Israeli officials, including National Defense Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir and right-wing Rabbi Yehuda Glick. He is considered one of the biggest instigators of the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli security services said the Jordanian-based was directing the cell on behalf of Iranian security officials.

The statement said that the cell includes 5 people, 3 from the Jenin governorate in the northern West Bank and 2 from inside the Green Line.

According to the same source, the cell was tasked with burning Israeli cars and property and taking pictures of sensitive areas in Israel.

Also last year, the Shin Bet announced the arrest of 5 Palestinians from occupied Jerusalem on suspicion of planning to assassinate Itamar Ben Gvir and other Israeli figures and carrying out bombing attacks on Israeli targets.

That same year, Tel Aviv announced the dismantling of a spy network working for Iran that recruits Israeli women on social networks to later assign them various tasks, such as obtaining documents for the army.
