The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
As part of an ongoing campaign against illegal weapons, Border Police and IDF forces seized nine weapons and ammunition in Arab villages of Judea and Samaria. The findings were transferred to security forces.
Over the weekend, tens of thousands of Jewish Israelis and visitors came to Hevron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in a yearly pilgrimage to mark the reading of the week’s Torah portion.
