PA intelligence officer arrested with IDF uniforms

A task that seems endless: rounding up terrorists and potential murderers

IDF uniforms, two guns, and documents were found by police in the home of a Palestinian intelligence officer arrested in Akaba, in Samaria, early Thursday morning.

According to officials, the two guns have been sent for ballistic tests to determine whether they were involved in terrorist attacks.

Meanwhile, the IDF wound up a large-scale operation in Kalkilya on Thursday morning, arresting 12 fugitives affiliated with the Tanzim and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
In other operations in the West Bank, security forces arrested a Hamas activist in Beit Jala, two fugitives in Salfit, and another in Katana southwest of Ramallah.

Palestinians reported, meanwhile, that IDF forces shot and killed a 16-year-old in Jenin early Thursday evening. According to the IDF, the youth attempted to climb up a tank and throw an explosive device inside it when soldiers nearby shot him.
