IDF troops in collaboration with police set out on a raid in the West Bank Wednesday night, confiscating terror funds that were given to families of terrorists by Palestinian authorities to reward and incite them to participate in more terror activities.

Forces confiscated thousands of shekels as well as vehicles that were given to families of terrorists who planned and carried out terror attacks against Israelis.

During the activity, one soldier was lightly injured after a rock was hurled at him. He received medical treatment at the scene and was later evacuated to a hospital.

Shin Bet, Border Police, IDF and police forces collaborated to bring to detention 11 wanted suspects in the West Bank. Eight of them are suspected of involvement in local terror activities and in participating in violent demonstrations that targeted both soldiers and Israeli civilians. All suspects are expected to be interrogated by security forces.
