20 wanted Palestinians held

JERUSALEM: Israeli troops arrested 20 wanted Palestinians, including two militants from the radical Islamic Jihad movement, during overnight operations in the West Bank, a spokesman for the army said early yesterday.  

One of the Islamic Jihad activists was arrested in Ramallah and a second was picked up in Tammun, a village some 10km northeast of Nablus. 

Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Netanya on Sunday which left 26 people injured, six of them seriously, but only killed the bomber who came from the town of Tulkarem. 

Twelve of the 20 Palestinians who were arrested came from the Tulkarem area, the spokesman said. 

The army also said it picked up a potential suicide bomber in the village of Tubbas. – AFP
