RAMALLAH: Palestinian security officials are dismissing Israel's claim that it broke up an Al-Qaeda plot to bomb the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Adnan Damiri, a spokesman for the Palestinian security services in the West Bank, says there is "no indication" that Al-Qaeda has a presence in the territory. He accused Israel of arresting some "boys" and exaggerating the nature of the threat to bolster its position in peace talks. Israel says it must retain a presence in parts of the West Bank after any peace deal because of security concerns.

Israel said Wednesday it had arrested three Palestinian men - two from Israeli-controlled east Jerusalem and one from the West Bank - in the plot. It said they received through instructions through a handler in the Gaza Strip.
