22 wanted terrorists arrested in Judea and Samaria – ‘Pay to slay’ money seized near Jerusalem
BREAKING: The IDF arrested 22 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
Border Police officers arrested a Muslim terrorist at the Kiosk checkpoint in Abu Dis for holding funds intended to finance terror activities.
Acting on a piece of timely intel, the officers apprehended the driver, a resident of Hevron in his 30s and a female passenger.
NIS 4,757 were discovered while searching the vehicle. In addition, a stolen chip and checks worth NIS 17,025 were found. The female who was traveling in the vehicle held additional NIS 44,140 in cash.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting that the law on terrorists’ salaries deduction will be implemented next week.
The law says that welfare payments paid out by the PA to Muslim terrorists in Israeli prisons and to their families, as well as the families of terrorists eliminated during terror attacks, must be deducted from tax revenues Israel transfers annually to the administrative body.
