Israeli security forces raided a secret weapons lab in Samaria early Wednesday morning.

In a pre-dawn raid, army units operating in conjunction with the Shin Bet internal security agency, Border Police, and Israel Police operated in the town of Arraba, near Jenin, in northern Samaria.

A factory in Arraba, Israeli security forces had determined, was manufacturing firearms and other weapons intended for use in terror attacks against Israeli civilians and security personnel.

In a separate operation early Wednesday morning, IDF, Border Police, and Israel Police forces searching for illegal weapons in Samaria found a makeshift firearm in the village of al-Mughayyer, which is also located near Jenin in northern Samaria.

IDF, Shin Bet, and Border Police forces also operated in Judea overnight, seizing thousands of shekels in terror funds and a car from a Hamas cell in Hevron.

A total of 13 wanted terrorists were captured overnight across Judea and Samaria, including 9 suspected in terror attacks against Israeli civilians and security forces.
