IDF soldiers, border police and ISA (Israel Security Agency/Shin Bet) agents during the night arrested 29 PA (Palestinian Authority) residents suspected of taking party in terror attacks and/or violent clashes with security authorities and Israeli citizens.
During the course of the operation in PA areas of Hebron, forces found illegal weapons and ammunition including a Carlo automatic weapon, a pistol, and ammunition for the aforementioned.
In addition, security forces raided homes in the PA village of Tzurif which is located in the Etzion district, where they found tens of thousands of shekels terrorist cash, which they confiscated.
The operations were part of ongoing almost daily counterterrorism efforts throughout these areas permitting the IDF to arrest suspects, who was subsequently interrogated, providing quality intelligence information, which often leads to the prevention of terrorist attacks.
