Palestinian forces bust money counterfeiting laboratory in Tulkarem

TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian preventive security forces arrested two Palestinians in the northern occupied West Bank of Tulkarem earlier this week and seized tools used to counterfeit money.

The head of the Palestinian preventive security forces in Tulkarem, Muhammad Zakarna, told Ma’an that Palestinian police forces raided an apartment in the city after receiving information that it was hosting a laboratory for money counterfeiting.

Zakarna added that chemicals and tools were found in the apartment, in addition to more than a hundred counterfeit 200-shekel bills and unspecified amounts of money.

Zakarna added that two suspects were arrested, and that the investigation was still open to identify and apprehend other members of the operation, noting that the counterfeiting ring was believed to have been in operation for several months.

This case is believed to be the first in which Palestinian security forces apprehended a counterfeiting laboratory.
