IDF arrests 9 Palestinians overnight; Palestinian who approached border police killed

IDF forces arrested overnight Saturday nine people in the West Bank. In Nablus, Israeli border police shot and killed a Palestinian, believed to be mentally unstable, who approached the forces. In addition, military forces raided five 'Dawa' Hamas affiliated charities.

 

A senior military official stressed that "the fact that dozens of people are being arrested every night does not mean that we are taking the foot off the pedal, but that we are concentrating our efforts in searches north of Hebron. A total of 350 people have been arrested since the beginning of the operation and nearly 1,300 targets have been scanned." (Yoav Zitun)
