14 wanted suspects were apprehended overnight in the West Bank in a joint operation carried out by IDF, Shin Bet and police forces. Nine of the arrested suspects are suspected of involvement in local terror activities as well as in participating in violent demonstrations against security forces and civilians.
Five of the suspects are linked to Hamas, the terror organization ruling in the Gaza Strip.
