Israeli troops conduct special operation on Palestinian territory

Last night Israeli military troops conducted a special operation around the Palestinian town of Nablus on the West Bank of the Jordan river.

They arrested ten Palestinians suspected of involvement in terrorist activities. In the houses of two of them the troops found equipment of suicide bombers. Other eight men are active participants of the People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Two Palestinians were arrested by the Israelis in Hebron. Their names are on the so-called black lists of those involved in terrorist activities. In particular, one of the arrested men is suspected of taking part in the terrorist act in the Israeli town of Rishon Le-Cion.

In the Gaza Strip, near Rafiyah, the Israeli troops during a night operation found a new underground tunnel leading to Egypt. Such tunnels are used by the Palestinians to send arms to Gaza, the Israeli stress. Yet many observers believe the main goal of such tunnels is smuggling.
