Israeli security forces arrested 12 Palestinians overnight Monday, including six from the village of Nabi Saleh who had allegedly thrown stones at a Border Police jeep while at a gas station in early March.

Villagers threw stones and paint bombs at the security forces during the overnight raid. One family filmed the soldiers who entered their home to carry out arrests.

Border police said their forces arrested two minors and four young adults.

“As soon we had incriminating documentation of the rioters who threw stones at the jeep, we knew we would settle a score with them and arrest them,” said the Border Police commander who led the raid.

On Friday, Palestinians held a rally in Nabi Saleh in support of the Palestinian prisoners, including those jailed for killing Israelis. Protesters and the IDF clashed at the entry to the village. Young Palestinian men and teenagers threw stones at the soldiers, who in turn threw tear gas at the rioters.



The village has a long history of such protests.



Separately in the pre-dawn hours of Monday morning, the IDF and Border Police arrested six other Palestinian for alleged security violations, four of whom were Hamas members.

Security forces also entered the home of the 18-year-old Palestinian teen who stabbed and lightly wounded four people in Tel Aviv on Sunday.
