    The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) arrested 11 Palestinian terror suspects in the West Bank, IDF spokesman Peter Lerner said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Israel has experienced a wave of violence since early September 2015, which has left several hundred people dead. Most of the victims are Palestinians who have been killed in knife, firearm and car attacks on Israelis.

    ​On Sunday, the IDF arrested six Hamas militants allegedly involved in planning and carrying out April's bus bombing in Jerusalem.

    In the conflict between Israel and Palestine, Palestinians seek recognition of their independent state on the territories of West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
