Security forces said a sharp rise has occurred in recent months in these types of attacks, prompting an investigation.
The three main suspects, all linked to Hamas by the Shin Bet, have been named as Ahmed Tzanduka, 18, Muhammed Tzalah, 20, and Malac Mahisan, 20.
"The investigation showed that this cell carried out a long line of attacks, including fire-bombings and rock throwing at police, and an attack a Border Police post on September 14 with Molotov cocktails, rocks, and fireworks, when it was manned by a single officer.
The suspects have been charged with manufacturing weapons, aggravated assault, arson, aggravated assault on police and disorder.
