A total of ten Palestinian Arab terrorists were arrested overnight Wednesday/Thursday, after a special operation by the Samaria Brigade and the Duvdevan Unit of the IDF in Shechem (Nablus) exposed a weapons cache.

Security forces seized 2 pistols and several cartridges, an Uzi submachine gun, improvised weapons, ammunition, at least one Kalashnikov rifle and one M16, and 8 pipe bombs.

In addition, they confiscated funds set aside for more terror attacks, and arrested seven suspects.

Three additional men were arrested throughout Judea-Samaria by IDF forces overnight – two on suspicion of involvement in terror in Jazalun, near Beit El, and one a Hamas terrorist in Hevron.

The men have been taken into Israeli custody.
