A Palestinian suspect in the deadly shooting of Israeli teenagers in the West Bank has been arrested, according to Israeli media.

Israeli police and soldiers arrested Muntasir Shalabi in the central West Bank town of Silwad northeast of the Palestinian capital of Ramallah on Wednesday night. He does not have any known affiliations with Palestinian armed groups, The Times of Israel reported. Israel’s public broadcaster Kan also reported the arrest.
