IDF, Shin Bet, Israel Police and Israel Border Police forces arrested 19 wanted Palestinians in the West Bank early Tuesday morning. Most of the suspects were wanted in connection with terrorist activities and violent riots that endangered civilians and security personnel.

In addition, large sums of cash were seized in the Palestinian town of Beit Awwa. It is believed that the suspects intended to use the money to fund terrorist acts.

On Monday, 51 people were arrested on suspicion of participating in a riot in Jerusalem’s Isawiya neighborhood.
