The IDF and Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency launched an operation in Judea and Samaria overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday to seize illegal weapons and terrorist finances in the possession of Hamas.
The army said the assets seized in the raids enabled Hamas to "strengthen its grip on the territory" in the Palestinian territories.
During the operation, terrorist finances worth 45 thousand shekels were seized.
Kfir infantry soldiers from the Menashe territorial Brigade launched raids southwest of Jenin and uncovered large numbers of firearms, ammunition, and knives, the army added.
The army arrested six Palestinian suspects found to be in possession of weapons.
