Fighters from the haredi Netzah Yehuda Battalion on Sunday were able to confiscate a gun that was hidden in a home in the Palestinian Arab village of Al-Mazra'a ash-Sharqiya.
During an IDF operation in the village, the fighters seized a gun and arrested a man wanted on suspicion of involvement in terrorism and possession of illegal weapons.
The weapon seized by the fighters had been hidden by the detainee under furniture and was wrapped in a number of plastic bags that did not indicate the dangerous and illegal weapon that was hidden inside.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said, "The IDF will continue to act against the illegal weapons in Judea and Samaria."
Last week, fighters from the Netzah Yehuda Battalion stationed near the town of Ofra in Binyamin caught three rock-throwing terrorists.
Following several days of observations, the fighters spotted the three terrorists who were preparing to throw rocks at vehicles traveling on Highway 60, and chased them until they were able to apprehend them. The three were taken for questioning by the security forces.
