IDF forces continued their search for the three abducted teens in Operation Brother's Keeper on Tuesday night, arresting 17 more terrorists. Among the arrested was a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Haled Ibrahim, who was apprehended in Bethlehem, to the south of Jerusalem in Judea.
Ibrahim is not the first PLC member to be arrested. Last Monday Aziz Duwaik, the Speaker of the PLC from the Hamas movement, was arrested. According to Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) laws, Duwaik's position is second in line to that of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
