On Thursday (Dec 3.), two I.E.D’s, weighing five and three kilograms respectively, were uncovered by an IDF (Zahal) force a short while ago on a patrol route near Bet El, North of Ramallah. Both I.E.D’s were detonated in a controlled manner by sappers. IDF (Zahal) soldiers were searching the area for more information.

During the night, IDF (Zahal) forces arrested 15 wanted Palestinians in the Judea and Samaria region. Additionally a force from the Kfir Brigade unveiled an improvised rifle in the belongings of a Palestinian in a checkpoint near the Gush Etzion junction. The rifle was confiscated and the man was taken by the Israeli Police for further investigations.
