IDF Arrests 16 Wanted Terrorists


IDF soldiers arrested 16 wanted terrorists on Tuesday night.  The terrorists have been taken to security services for questioning.

 

The arrest operation was the first of its kind for several days.  The IDF halted arrest operations for a short time as a “gesture” to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.  Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has ordered the army to avoid arresting any of almost 200 terrorists who promised they would stop engaging in terrorist activity.
