Six wanted suspects were arrested in the West Bank overnight on Friday in a joint operation carried out by the IDF, Border Police and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) forces. Three of the suspects are suspected of involvement in local terror activities as well as in participating in violent demonstrations against security forces and civilians.
