IDF infantry forces arrested last night a Tanzim operative, Khaled Zaba’arah, in Halhul, north of the city of Hebron, in an area under full Palestinian control. He is wanted by the security forces for his involvement in shooting attacks. Shots were fired at the IDF forces during the operation. The forces returned fire toward the sources of fire. In addition, an IDF force spotted a terrorist fleeing from one of the houses. The force opened fire at the armed Palestinian and killed him. Two rifles were found on the dead terrorist. IDF forces also arrested Murad Janid, a Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant, south of the Halhul bridge, in an area under full Palestinian control. He is wanted by the security forces for his involvement in shooting attacks and assisting the transport of explosives. It should be noted that the arrests were carried out in light of the absolute lack of action by the Palestinian Authority to prevent terror that issues forth from within its territory. All of the suspects have been transferred for investigation by the security forces. The IDF will continue to operate at all times in order to protect the security of the citizens of the State of Israel and IDF.
