HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A campaign by Palestinian security forces in the Hebron district led to the destruction of 364 "illegal" vehicles and the arrests of 128 wanted people, the Hebron governor said Sunday.
Kamil Hmeid said in a news conference at al-Hawuooz police station that over 90 percent of crimes committed in the Hebron district are done in areas under Israeli security control.
Hmeid said that a new campaign is the largest so far, and it will continue to fight all "negative phenomena" that endanger the Palestinian community “despite the difficulties faced by occupation.”
He praised police officers for their efforts.
