Israeli Police said Sunday that the four Palestinians who where caught early in the morning were Palestinians staying in Israel without a permit that allow them to do so, dismissing earlier news that the four might have been in way to carryout an attack inside Israel.

In-spite of the police confirmation, Israeli security forces decided to remove the high alert it announced Saturday night following an evaluation of security risks.
