6 Muslim terrorists arrested during counter-terrorism operations in Judea and Samaria

BREAKING: The IDF arrested five Muslim terrorists overnight in the Arab villages of Ya’bad and Qabatiya in northern Samaria, according to Arab reports.

In addition, a convicted Muslim terrorist who spent ten years in Israeli prisons was re-arrested Thursday morning in the city of Hevron.

The arrested were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.

IDF troops set up a roadblock at the entrance of the al-Muhallal neighborhood in the Arab town of Ni’ilin, west of Ramallah, as part of counter-terrorism measures in the area.

Yesterday, for the first time since the security coordination with the Palestinian Authority was stopped, IDF troops operated in the Arab territories of Judea and Samaria.

According to reports, PA security services have ordered their forces not to carry weapons or wear uniforms outside the Arab territories in Judea and Samaria. They were also ordered to move only in civilian vehicles, due to the suspension of security coordination with the IDF.
