Israel Police reportedly arrested 36 Arabs Sunday in Jerusalem for allegedly disturbing the peace, throwing rocks and hurling firebombs, Ha’aretz reported.
Since the recent disturbances began after the murder of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir two weeks ago, 165 people have been arrested for the same or related charges, including 44 minors.
In the West Bank, the IDF arrested 23 Palestinians overnight, including five people from Hebron who are linked to Hamas. Those five are reportedly being investigated for possibly playing roles in the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens last month.
The IDF also killed one masked Palestinian. The killing reportedly happened as the IDF was trying to arrest three masked Palestinians carrying rocks and paint bottles used for making firebombs.
Meanwhile, Israel shot down a drone from Gaza. It is yet unclear whether the unmanned aircraft was rigged with explosives or not.
