Last night, IDF forces, along with Border Police and Israel Police forces, secured the entry of 100 visitors to the complex of the burial place of Elazar, Son of Aharon, located in the Arab village of Awarta in Samaria. Prayers at the site proceeded without disruption. Elazar was the second HIgh Priest, who succeeded his father in the role after his father's death, as mentioned in the Torah.

In addition, the IDF said that, during searches in the Arab village of Beit Mirsim in the Hevron hills, IDF forces, in coordination with Border Police and Israel Police, found a pistol and two other homemade weapons. Likewise, a suspect in whose possession the weapons were found was arrested.
