The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained 14 wanted Palestinians and seized several weapons during overnight arrest raids across the West Bank.

The raids included operations in the village of Bayt Duqu, home to the assailant who seriously injured an officer in Wednesday’s car-ramming attack at a West Bank checkpoint east of the Israeli city of Modiin. The injured officer shot the Palestinian attacker, killing him.

The IDF says that during the operations in Bayt Duqu, riots broke out and rocks and Molotov cocktails were thrown toward troops, who responded with crowd dispersal means.

The 14 suspects have been taken by the Shin Bet security agency for further questioning.
