BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's army said Monday it arrested members of a Palestinian militant group in 2012 responsible for attacks against Israeli targets.

"A terror squad responsible for executing terror attacks was arrested over the course of November and December 2012. The squad members are operatives of the Tanzim and Fatah organizations, and residents of Beit Fajar," the army said in a statement.

The military says the detainees admitted to carrying out several attacks against Israelis. They have been charged with several felonies, including deliberately attempting to cause death, the army said.
