Israeli Border Police forces on Thursday arrested a man suspected of terrorist activities at the Birzeit University in the West Bank. The forces, who are part of an undercover counter-terrorism unit, disguised themselves as Palestinian students.
In a video taken moments before the arrest, the Israeli troops can be seen assimilated among the Arab students. Though several reports on social media claimed the Israeli troops were disguised as journalists, the Border Police have vehemently denied this claim.
"As the operations unit of the Israel Police, we will continue to work together with the various security bodies to protect the citizens of Israel anytime, anywhere," the Border Police said in a statement.Click here to JerusalemOnline homepage
