IDF raids 120 homes overnight in latest Hebron search for the three kidnapped Israeli teens.
 
The IDF arrested four Palestinians suspected of terrorism early Tuesday morning - bringing the total number of arrests since three Israeli boys went missing a week and a half ago to 354. Out of those, 269 are Hamas members.

An IDF spokeswoman said 120 homes were raided in Hebron overnight, between Monday and Tuesday.

This comes after 37 Palestinians were arrested Sunday night. 

Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal denied Monday that his organization had any information about the kidnapping of three Israeli teens but he applauded the action to capture who he called the three "soldier- settlers."

"We don't have any information about the missing three soldier-settlers," Mashaal was quoted as saying by Palimes, a website aligned with the group.

Reuters contributed to this report.
