HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police on Sunday said they arrested three "dangerous fugitives" in the Hebron district of the southern occupied West Bank, according to a police spokesperson.

Luay Irzeiqat said in the written statement that two of the "wanted" men were arrested inside a house in the Jabal Juhar neighborhood of Hebron city, an area under full Israeli military control, and that a third was arrested in the Zeif area in southern Hebron.

Irzeiqat described the suspects, who remained unidentified, as "three of the most dangerous fugitives (in the occupied West Bank), who stand accused of 60 different crimes including theft, fraud, shooting, and terrifying citizens."

The arrests came amid a security crackdown by Palestinian security forces to seize weapons and detain “wanted criminals” across the West Bank, as part of the Palestinian Authority’s security coordination with Israel, which has been denounced by critics as a “revolving door policy" of funneling Palestinians from PA jails into Israeli prisons.

The security coordination has been the target of growing criticism in recent weeks, as detention raids by Palestinian police have sparked violent clashes, and after a prominent Palestinian activist was killed by Israeli forces, months after he was released from Palestinian custody. Basel al-Araj's killing inspired anti-PA protests, which were violently suppressed by Palestinian police.
