In the West Bank, a special Border Police unit arrested an Islamic Jihad fugitive on Monday night in Tubas northeast of Nablus. The fugitive had in his possession a Kalashnikov rifle and ammunition, which were confiscated by security forces. He was handed over to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) for questioning. In the morning, security forces arrested ten Palestinian fugitives. The majority of fugitives are affiliated with Hamas and Fatah Tanzim and one with Islamic Jihad. They were arrested in Hebron, Bethlehem and villages near the city, as well as in a village near Kalkilya and in Jenin.
