Tensions have remained high in the West Bank, as Israeli security forces stepped up arrest raids and operations following a deadly wave of terror attacks against Israelis.
The aim was to arrest and question Palestinians with ties to Hamas and others who were involved in alleged terror activities. Israeli troops raided the homes of 39 Palestinians with alleged ties to the Hamas terror group and 13 wanted Palestinians were detained during the raids. Last week, two Palestinian gunmen were killed in an Israeli military raid in the northern West Bank city of Nablus. Pray that Palestinians refrain from violent activities and break ties with terrorist groups. Pray for the people to shun evil ways and accept God for new relationship with Him (The Bible, 1 John 1:1).
