Israeli security forces operating across Judea and Samaria apprehended five wanted Arab suspects and located a submachine gun.

The five suspects were captured in a series of pre-dawn raids conducted jointly by the IDF, Shin Bet internal security agency, Border Police, and Israel Police early Monday morning.

Among the five suspects nabbed Monday morning were four individuals wanted for terror attacks on Israeli security forces and civilians.

The suspects were detained and transferred for interrogation.

During searches conducted in the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Jalazone, near Ramallah, IDF soldiers found a makeshift submachine, apparently manufactured in an illegal weapons factory.
