Israeli security forces arrested eight Palestinians in an overnight raid in the West Bank, according to the IDF spokesperson's unit. 

In the overnight operation, Israeli security forces in conjunction with the Shin Bet, the Border Police and Israeli police arrested eight Palestinians suspected of involvement in violent disturbances against civilians and popular terror.

In the West Bank village of Al-Omri, Israeli soldiers from the Binyamin Regional Brigade found and seized weapons in an arms search.
