IDF soldiers closed down a printing house in Ramallah that had been used for producing anti-Israel incitement materials. In a joint operation with the Border Police and Shin Bet, soldiers entered Ramallah overnight Wednesday and seized equipment and materials. The same printing press had been shut down in the past, and then reopened, officials said.
IDF soldiers and Shin Bet agents overnight Wednesday shut down a workshop for the manufacture of arms in the Arab village of Na’alin in the Binyamin region. The workshop produced dozens of weapons a year. It included several large metal cutting machines, along with dozens of weapons in various stages of manufacture. Soldiers confiscated the equipment and weapons, and made several arrests.
Overnight Wednesday, security officials said they arrested 22 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.
