The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) together with the IDF launched an arms raid in the village of Ya'abd, near Jenin early on Friday, security forces announced on Sunday, seizing 15 locally made firearms.

Intelligence on the whereabouts of the firearms came from the questioning of a local arms manufacturer, the Shin Bet added.

In recent days, security forces also raided gun manufacturing workshops in Nablus, seizing a number of firearms.

The Shin Bet said it has spent recent months raiding dozens of similar workshops across the West Bank.
