IDF soldiers arrested three Palestinian women who allegedly tried to enter a West Bank military encampment armed with knives, the army announced on Thursday.

The arrest took place on the roadway connecting the Jewish settlement of Tekoa and the south Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa.

The army conducted a raid on the Bethlehem refugee camp of Daheisha during which soldiers arrested a wanted Palestinian.

Troops also entered the homes of a number of Palestinians alleged to have taken part in terrorist-related activities on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

The PFLP is a Marxist-Leninist faction and one of the founding groups that comprise the Palestine Liberation Organization.

IDF troops and Border Police officers rounded up 18 wanted Palestinians believed to have taken part in recent rioting against civilians and security forces.
