The war on terror continues as security forces arrest Arabs involved in terrorism and riots and further map out plans for demolition of terrorists' homes.

Kikar Hashabat reports Monday that IDF forces, along with Border Police, arrested 13 wanted suspects in Judea and Samaria overnight. 7 of the arrested are suspected of involvement in terrorism and mass violence disturbances against civilians and security forces; some of them belong to Hamas.

Concurrently, a joint operation of the Etzion Regional Brigade General Security Service and fighters of the ‘Duvdevan’ unit arrested active terrorists associated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the village of Dehaishe. The arrested were involved in leading the violent disturbances that have been taking place in Rachel’s Tomb. Suspects were taken in for questioning.

Additionally, forces of the ‘Nahal’ battalion and engineering forces in cooperation with the Civil Administration operated at the Silwad village near Ramallah last night.  The engineers mapped out the home of terrorist Mohammed Abdul Rahman Ahmad Ayad, who carried out a vehicular attack 3 weeks ago during the Silwad riots.
