JERUSALEM, March 7 (UPI) -- The Islamic Movement's Northern Front leader was arrested Wednesday at a Jerusalem protest for flying Syrian and Palestinian Liberation Organization flags.

Sheik Raed Salah and one of his followers were arrested by Jerusalem police for suspicion of incitement the Jerusalem Post reported. Salah was indicted on similar charges in February after a protest at the Temple Mount.

Previously, 18 wanted activists surrendered to Israeli Defense Forces at the Palestinian military intelligence headquarters in Ramallah, YNetNews reported. The arrests Tuesday night occurred after IDF soldiers encircled a building in the compound and demanded that Fatah and al-Aqsa Brigades operatives who are wanted in Israel surrender. The Israeli soldiers threatened to storm the building unless the suspects came out.

A Palestinian security source told YNetNews those arrested were thought to include senior officials, including some alleged to have been involved in planning and executing terror attacks against Israel.
