An armed Palestinian Authority resident was arrested Sunday afternoon near the Israeli town of Efrat, in Gush Etzion south of Jerusalem.

The suspect was apprehended by IDF soldiers near Efrat Junction in the Gush Etzion area, and was transferred to interrogation, to ascertain whether he was planning a terrorist attack.

Last night, terrorists in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip fired rockets at southern Israel, prompting retaliatory strikes by the IDF in the Gaza Strip.
