18 wanted terrorists arrested overnight in Judea and Samaria
The IDF arrested 18 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.
As part of an ongoing campaign against illegal weapons, IDF forces from the Menashe Brigade seized a handgun.
Yesterday, two Muslim terrorists armed with handguns were arrested in northern Samaria. IDF forces identified a vehicle that aroused their suspicion near the Jewish community of Elkana.
Upon searching the car, the forces found two handguns and ammunition hidden in a child’s backpack.
“A child’s backpack should hold books, not weapons”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
