Searches for the abducted youths continue to be focused in north Hebron as IDF forces make arrests overnight, 5 of whom are Hamas members.
 
Security forces arrested six Palestinian suspects in the West Bank overnight between Sunday and Monday, five them Hamas members.

Five of the suspects were arrested in the Judea region and one in Binyamin.

The arrests were made as part of the intelligence investigation into the location of the three abducted Israeli youths, a senior security source said.

"A number of forensic tests have been carried out too," the source said.

Minor, localized clashes with army forces occurred in Beitunia, Jayous, and Khader. "As we've assessed, the Ramadan is not a barrier [to operations]," said the source. "We are adapting the activity in all aspects linked to easing conditions [on the general Palestinian population]," he added.

The first Friday this week of Ramadan will form a significant test, according to the source.
