YERUSHALAYIM - IDF troops overnight Tuesday eliminated two Arab terrorists in activity in Jenin. A third terrorist was badly wounded. The three were shot after they threw firebombs at Israeli soldiers on patrol. No Israeli soldiers were injured in the incident.

Early Wednesday, Civil Administration officials demolished four illegal structures built by Arabs in the E1 corridor, between Yerushalayim and Maale Adumim. The buildings were demolished after security officials alerted the Civil Administration of their presence this week. In a statement, the Administration said that it would continue to uphold the law and demolish structures that are put up without the required permits.

Overnight Tuesday, security officials said they arrested 21 wanted security suspects in other areas in Yehudah and Shomron. The suspects were wanted for participating in rioting and throwing stones and firebombs that endangered Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. Several of the suspects were also charged with belonging to Hamas. All were being questioned on their activities by security forces.
