Security forces announced on Monday the arrest of several Palestinian residents of the Shuafat refugee camp, in north Jerusalem, on suspicion of a series of recent Molotov cocktail and rock throwing attacks.

The Shin Bet [Israel Security Agency], Israel Police, and Border Police jointly carried out the arrests in October and November, saying the men, some of whom are affiliated with Hamas, carried out daily attacks on police in their area and in the nearby Ras Hamis neighborhood.

Security forces said a sharp rise has occurred in recent months in these types of attacks, prompting an investigation.

The three main suspects, all linked to Hamas by the Shin Bet, have been named as Ahmed Tzanduka, 18, Muhammed Tzalah, 20, and Malac Mahisan, 20.
