Weapons cache found in Hebron area by IDF troops overnight.

It was another busy night for Israeli security personnel as troops found a weapons cache in the Judean Arab town of Yatta, and “mapped out” the home of a terrorist in Samaria.

Joint operations involving IDF soldiers, Israel Police and Border Guard Police officers led to the capture and arrest of 17 wanted terrorist suspects in Judea and Samaria late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

Two of the detainees were members of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization. The others are accused of violent attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel. All were transferred to the appropriate authorities for interrogation.

A cache of Kalashnikov assault rifles, hunting rifles and rifle sights was found by an IDF combat unit of the 401 Brigade armored division in the town of Yatta, a sprawling Hebron suburb south of the ancient city.
