Israeli forces arrested 15 security suspects, including three Hamas members, during a series of counter-terrorism raids across Judea and Samaria on Wednesday, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

One Israeli soldier and several Palestinians were injured in violent riots that broke out during raids in Qalqilya, Beita and Tulkarm, according to the military.

One suspect was shot while attempting to escape from IDF forces in Tulkarm. He was arrested and evacuated to the hospital, the IDF said in a statement.

All of the suspects, as well as the weapons seized in the raids, were transferred to the Israel Security Agency for further processing.
