The 14 suspects were nabbed in a series of joint pre-dawn operations Tuesday morning involving the IDF, Israel Police, Shin Bet internal security agency, and Border Police.

In western Samaria, IDF soldiers and a Border Police unit discovered a weapons cache in the Arab village of Naalin (Nilin). Three firearms and ammunition were confiscated.

In a separate operation overnight, IDF forces working with the Shin Bet internal security agency and Israel Police shut down a print house in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Ramallah. The facility was reportedly used to print anti-Israeli propaganda for the promotion of terrorism.
