Basel Al-Araj, 31, was killed in Al-Bireh, near Ramallah. According to the Border Police, he was the head of a terror cell that planned attacks against Israelis and was in charge of procuring weapons for the attacks.
Following a search of the suspect's home, security forces discovered two M16 rifles and a Carlo submachine gun.
Following the commotion, disturbances broke out with Palestinian stone throwers and rioters converging on the scene. Security forces responded with riot control measures and injured two Palestinians.
After security forces finished a search of the premises, they collected the seized weapons and took the suspect's body.
In addition to the arrest raid in Al-Bireh that resulted in the death of the suspect, IDF forces arrested 12 other terror suspects in the West Bank and confiscated thousands of shekels destined for terror financing.
