Security forces foil attempt to smuggle weapons parts into the PA
BREAKING: Security forces at the Tarqumiyah crossing in the Hevron area foiled an attempt to smuggle weapons, grinders, and drills into the Palestinian Authority.
The weapons and other equipment were meant for use in weapon production.
A vehicle with Israeli yellow plates carrying two Muslims was stopped for inspection after arousing the suspicion of security forces at the Tarqumiyah checkpoint.
Upon searching, trigger housings, springs, silencers, ammunition, drills, and lathes were found in the vehicle.
During preliminary interrogation, the driver claimed that he didn’t know what he was carrying in the cargo. Both terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
In addition, the IDF arrested 23 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
