The Shin Bet, with the assistance of the IDF and police, arrested five Tanzim operatives in a house in Beit Fajjar, near Bethlehem. The men were charged at a military court with carrying out shooting attacks and throwing firebombs at the Migdal Oz settlement in Gush Etzion. The detainees were also charged with placing a mock bomb in the area. No one was injured in these incidents.
During their arrest the men were in possession of six makeshift weapons and a fake explosive device. (Yoav Zitun)
