Security forces arrested 19 Palestinian suspects in West Bank raids overnight between Monday and Tuesday, seven of who are suspected of taking part in disturbances and unorganized terrorism, the IDF said.

Units arrested three Hamas members in Beitunia, southwest of Ramallah, and a fourth in Ein Um A-Sarait, south of Ramallah.

Additionally, IDF units, working with the Shin Bet and Border Police, launched an operation overnight to seize illegal weapons in Nablus.

Security forces located a lathe for producing arms, grenades, magazine clips and ammunition, and arrested seven terrorism suspects found to possess weapons in their home.

In another raid launched by the Menashe territorial division and the Sa'ar Battalion (of the 188 Armored Brigade), soldiers found two handguns and three commando knives, as well as a grenade, an ammunition clip, and IDF vests.
