During a joint operation by IDF forces of the Judea Regional Brigade and Israel Police, a vehicle carrying a rifle was seized overnight.

Directed by an IDF lookout tower, forces followed and detained a suspicious vehicle in the South Hevron Hills which fled the forces and attempted to pass over the Green Line into pre-1967 Israel.

The Palestinian Arab driver of the vehicle was arrested for interrogation.

In addition, an operation was carried out by the IDF and Border Police to capture illegal weapons in the village of a-Shiuh in the area of the Etzion Regional Brigade.
During the operation, homemade weapons were seized and transferred to security forces.
