Undercover Israeli security forces arrested a terrorist suspect in the West Bank city of Jenin on Tuesday and have taken him in for questioning.

The undercover troops arrested the suspect, identified as a man in his 20s, in broad daylight in a clothing store in the city. They then left Jenin without incident.

On Monday night, the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Border Police arrested terrorism suspects and seized weapon caches from several West Bank towns, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit announced.

Ten wanted persons were arrested in total, though during the operation security, Israeli forces were attacked in Jaba with explosive devices and in Hebron with stones. The IDF said that there were no casualties to its troops.

Three men in Hebron were arrested along with two shotguns and shotgun shells, rifle sights, binoculars, bipods, 9mm pistol ammunition and AR-15 rifle family pieces.
