The Palestinian Authority security forces seized several hundred marijuana plants on Sunday morning in a village in the Hebron area, according to a Palestinian security official.
In a joint operation, the PA Police and PA Preventative Security confiscated 419 marijuana plants and thousands of marijuana seeds from a home in Sair, a village north of Hebron, Loay Irziqat, a spokesman for the PA Police, said in a Facebook post.
Members of the PA security forces also arrested two individuals whom they found in the home containing the marijuana plants, Irziqat added.
