Israeli agents arrested a Hamas member allegedly planning a suicide bombing. The man was arrested during an anti-terror raid over the weekend. During his interrogation, he reportedly revealed that he was planning the attack.

Israeli troops and settlers clashed at an illegal outpost in the West Bank. Havat Gilad is one of four outposts that Israel has slated to be dismantled. Last week, 17 outposts were dismantled. Many were dismantled by the settlers themselves in an attempt to pre-empt the evacuation of other settlements that might support more population.
