IDF Arrests Hamas PA Parliament Member


Despite Wednesday's riots by Arabs in Jerusalem, the IDF continued with its campaign of searching for the murderers of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel, and Gilad Sha'ar, and dismantling the infrastructure of Hamas, the terror group responsible for the kidnapping and murder of the teens.

Overnight Wednesday, the IDF said that it had arrested 13 terror suspects. Among them was Imad Nofal, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Authority parliament. Nofal was arrested in Kalkilye, an Arab city near Kfar Sava. In addition, the IDF said, it had closed down two Hamas institutions in the Hevron area which collected money from “donors” and using it for terror purposes.
