400 Visit The Kevarim Of Elazar And Itamar In Shomron

Under the watchful eye of soldiers, mispallalim were permitted entry to the kevarim of Elazar and Itamar, located in the PA occupied village of Awarta, in the Shomron district. The IDF reports about 400 mispallalim took part in the visit on Wednesday night.

Elsewhere in Yehuda and Shomron, IDF counter-terrorism operations continued on Wednesday night, with soldiers working in cooperation with border police, police and Shin Bet agents. Seven PA (Palestine Authority) residents suspected of acts of terror and/or confrontations with security forces.

The suspects were taken into custody and handed over to the Shin Bet for interrogation. Often, these arrests lead to vital intelligence information in the ongoing effort to prevent terror attacks.
