During their interrogations, the teens reportedly confessed to their role "in a number of incidents, including throwing pipe bombs at the Rachel's Tomb compound," an Israeli police statement said Thursday, adding they were also suspected of stone-throwing.
Four of the teens, aged 16 to 17, from the Palestinian al-Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem, were arrested last week, while the remaining three were taken in overnight Wednesday by police and military forces.
Police claim the group found bomb-making instructions online. Police say they expect additional arrests to be made and they will request a military court rule to keep all seven in custody.
