Israeli security forces arrested 22 suspects overnight Wednesday in the West Bank, according to the IDF spokesperson's office. The suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in terrorist activity and violent activity towards civilians and military personnel.

In addition, as part of a large-scale operation to combat Hamas infrastructure in Hebron, Israeli Police in Judea and Samara seized money given to families of terrorists, including the families of the perpetrators of the 2014 kidnapping and murder of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel. Confiscated items include thousands of shekels, two vehicles, and two computers.

According to the IDF, Hamas distributes funds to the families of terrorists in order to encourage such activity and recruit new operatives.
