Israel arrests four Palestinians over attacks

Israeli forces have arrested four Palestinians accused of attacks against Israelis, including shooting at an army patrol, Israel's domestic security agency Shin Bet said in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement said the men, aged between 18 and 22, were suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails at Israeli vehicles and opening fire on an army vehicle on patrol in the Bethlehem region.

No one was injured in the incidents, the statement said, adding that the four were also suspected of planning attacks against Jewish settlers in the area.
