In the Hebron area, units uncovered two sniper rifles, a Carl Gustav rifle, hunting rifles, a large quantity of ammunition, and a hunting knife. In Dir Abu Mashal, the Binyamin brigade together with the Shin Bet carried out weapons search, and arrested suspects who allegedly took part in unorganized violence. It also, with the help of the Beduin Desert Reconnaissance Battalion, uncovered an explosive device, which was detonated in a controlled explosion.

Separately, security forces arrested 24 security suspects in overnight raids across the West Bank, including one Hamas member.
