Security forces on Wednesday night confiscated illegal weapons, arrested wanted terrorists, and raided an illegal wreckage yard in a Hevron-area Arab city.

Soldiers in the IDF's Efraim Brigade on Wednesday night confiscated from would-be Arab terrorists illegal weapons, including two homemade "Carlo" submachine guns, as well as thousands of shekels worth of money intended for use in terror activities.

In addition, IDF forces arrested in Judea and Samaria sixteen wanted terrorists, suspected of participating in lone wolf terror, as well as violent disturbances of order towards civilians and security forces.

All of the suspects have been taken for interrogation.

Meanwhile, security forces raided an illegal wrecking yard in the city of ad-Dhahiriya, near Hevron. Twenty-five stolen cars were destroyed, as were over 50 pieces of cars and additional stolen equipment used by the wrecking yard.
