Israeli security forces have, for the second day in a row, carried out large arrest raids in the northern West Bank, targeting the areas where two Palestinian terrorists responsible for deadly terror attacks came from. During the raids, which began late Saturday night, IDF troops pursued a cell of six Palestinians in the sector of the Menashe Territorial Brigade. The cell was identified after they threw a bag out of a passenger vehicle driving along the seam line. Inside the bag troops discovered a Carlo submachine gun and a dozen bullets.

According to Walla, the cell was able to escape in the direction of the Arab-Israeli town of Umm el-Fahm. Security forces have been carrying out raids on Sunday morning across the northern West Bank and arrested over 24 Palestinians in Jenin, Ya’bad, Balata refugee camp in Nablus, Faqqua and other neighboring towns. During the raids, clashes broke out with armed Palestinians who threw stones, rocks, Molotov cocktails and explosive devices at security forces who responded with live fire.
