The IDF seized what it described as “incitement materials” in a broad operation throughout the West Bank overnight Wednesday-Thursday.

In raids that came on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Hamas terror group’s founding, Israeli forces targeted Al Quds University in the village of Abu Dis, Birzeit University near Ramallah and a printing press in Hebron, the army said in a statement.

“In the framework of the operation, posters, flags, and materials inciting terror were confiscated,” the army added.

The IDF did not specify what the materials said.

In separate overnight raids throughout the West Bank, Israeli forces arrested eight Palestinians suspected of involvement in terror activity.
