IDF and security forces arrested 20 Palestinians overnight Wednesday in the West Bank, 14 of whom are suspected of involvement in terror activities and rioting, along with attacking civilians and security forces. The suspects are being held for questioning.
In addition, IDF and security forces raided a weapons manfacturing workshop and seized a homemade rifle, a pistol and bullets.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit also said that troops sealed off the room of terrorist Younis Awad in his home in the village of Yatta, near Hebron. Awad helped plan last June’s mass shooting at the Sarona market in Tel Aviv, providing weapons and ammunition used in training prior to the attack and hiding them in his house. Four Israelis were killed.
