The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) on Wednesday (11) arrested eleven wanted suspects over allegations to have involvement in terrorist activity in the West Bank, foreign reports said.

An M16 rifle and ammunition were recovered from the suspects' possession. 

The suspects have been transferred to Shin Bet for the interrogation process, IDF said.

Militant attacks in the West Bank of Palestine seemed to have increased over the period. In 2012, the number of militant attacks in the West Bank rose from 320 in 2011 to 578 in 2012. During that same year, 282 attacks were carried out in Jerusalem, compared to 191 in 2011.
