Eight terrorist gangs operating in the West Bank were recently uncovered by the Israel Defense Force in cooperation with the General Security Services, or Shin Bet, it was reported here Thursday.

The gangs, whose substantial arms caches included Israeli-made Uzi submachine guns and rifles, were responsible for many terrorist attacks, the report said.

The terrorists were identified as members of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Al Fatah faction, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
