Concerned Over Possible Third Intifada, Israel Steps Up Judea, Samaria Arrests
Ynet – Israel plans to step up arrests of suspected terrorists in the West Bank to prevent the simmering civil unrest in the region from escalating into a full-blown uprising, security sources say.
“There is a certain (Palestinian) awakening,” one source told AFP.
“As a consequence a decision was taken within the security establishment to increase intelligence activity and arrests among members of Hamas or operatives against Israel,” he added. “It started in the past few days and will increase.”
