Last night, security forces carried out a large-scale operation in the city of Hevron which involved joint action and cooperation between IDF forces, the Shin Bet, and the Judea and Samaria district police.

The operation was part of the ongoing battle against homemade weapons manufacturers in Judea and Samaria.

During the course of the operation, forces confiscated two machines for manufacturing weapons and succeeded in closing down the largest weapons factory that has been busted in Judea and Samaria in the past year.

In addition, IDF forces arrested 8 in Judea and Samaria last night; 7 of these are suspected of nationalistic terror activity against Israeli citizens and security forces.
