    Israeli security forces arrested five suspects wanted for disturbing the public peace, as well as for violence against civilians and security forces in the West Bank, local media reported Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The operation was jointly conducted by the Israeli security agency Shin Bet and border police, according to The Jerusalem Post newspaper.

    The investigation is underway.

    Israeli forces regularly conduct search and detention raids on the territory of the West Bank. On August 10, five Palestinians were arrested in the West Bank on suspicion of their involvement in terror activities.
