3 Muslim terrorists arrested overnight in Judea and Samaria

BREAKING: The IDF arrested three 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.

The IDF announced that there will be a general closure of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza beginning on Sunday night ahead of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.

The closure, a routine counter-terrorism procedure during Israeli and Jewish holidays, is expected to last until midnight on Tuesday. Palestinian Authority workers will not be allowed into Israel during the closure to prevent terror attacks during the holiday.

Yesterday, IDF troops discovered and seized a local-made “Carlo” submachine gun during a counter-terrorism operation in the Arab village of Beit Umar in Gush Etzion.
