JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces have closed down a workshop used to forge documents in a village near Nablus in the occupied West Bank, officials said Thursday.
Authorities believe the lab was being used to forge documents in Aqraba village, said Luba Sumari, an Israeli police spokeswoman. Israel’s Shin Bet general security service assisted police in the investigation.
Sumari said a 34-year-old Palestinian man was arrested and various devices and means of forging were seized from the scene. She did not elaborate on the nature of these forged documents.
The suspect, who was not identified, is currently under investigation, she added.
