Israeli security forces captured 18 terror suspects late Sunday night in the regions of Judea and Samaria.

IDF soldiers worked in joint operations with Shin Bet intelligence agents, Israeli regional police and Border Guard police officers to capture the fugitives.


Sixteen of the suspects were accused of involvement with terrorist activities, riots and violence against civilians and security personnel. At least two of the suspects were accused of membership in the Hamas terrorist organization.

The suspects were turned over the security personnel for further questioning.

In addition, during the course of their operations, forces from the Ephraim regional brigade together with Border Guard Police officers in Kfar Zita discovered and seized makeshift weaponry.

The arms were turned over to security personnel.
