Palestinians walking with hunting rifle arrested near settlement

IDF soldiers arrest three Palestinians — one of them armed with a hunting rifle — who were walking near the Mevo Dotan settlement in the northern West Bank, the army says.

The Palestinian suspects have been handed over to the Shin Bet security service for questioning.

It is illegal for Palestinians to own guns in the West Bank, except for those who require them for work purposes.
