IDF forces arrested nine Palestinians across the West Bank on suspicion of terror Thursday overnight. As part of the ongoing Operation Brother's Keeper, 40 targets were searched, mainly in the area around Hebron. Two handguns were found in Beitunia, and an IED was discovered in Idhna.
A senior military source said the IDF was "partner to the decision to release the names of the suspects in the kidnapping, and it will not directly impact the operation." (Yoav Zitun)
