16 wanted terrorists arrested overnight in Judea and Samaria

The IDF arrested 16 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 put in place a total closure of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza ahead of Passover.

The closure, a routine counter-terrorism procedure during Israeli and Jewish holidays, is expected to last until April 27.

The passage from Judea and Samaria into others parts of Israel and from Gaza into Israel is only permitted for humanitarian, medical and exceptional cases, subject to the approval of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.
