TUBAS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority security forces arrested a group of arms dealers in the northern West Bank on Tuesday, a local official said.
Governor of Tubas Marwan al-Tubasi told Ma'an that security services received intelligence about the group operating in Tubas, and raided an apartment building they were using to store weapons.
"The detainees are being interrogated by both the Preventive Security services and intelligence officials. They will be referred to the courts after investigations," he added.
Security forces seized an unspecified amount of weapons from the hideout, with no details provided as to where the weapons were being trafficked.
