IDF, Shin Bet, Israel Border Police and Israel Police forces arrested six wanted Palestinians early Tuesday morning in the West Bank. The Palestinians are suspected of being involved in terrorist activities and violent riots that endangered Israeli security forces and citizens.
Yesterday, a young Palestinian carrying a knife was arrested by Israel Border Police officers when he arrived at the Cave of the Patriarchs security checkpoint. The 16-year-old Hebron resident had hidden the knife in his pants. The Israel Border Police said in a statement that the suspect had caught the attention of the officers at the scene because he was trying to avoid the security inspection.
On Sunday night, gunshots were fired at an IDF post near Ramallah. No damage or injuries were reported. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stated that the gunshots were fired from inside a vehicle and that the bullet casings were found in the area.
