As part of the ongoing war against terror and its infrastructure (which has been consolidated since the “cease-fire”), IDF infantry, armor, and combat engineering forces operated in the city of Jenin.
The above-mentioned operation is being carried out due to various warnings that terrorists from the northern West Bank plan on carrying out attacks in Israel. In addition, numerous shooting attacks have occurred in the area over the past month.
It should be noted that since June, Israeli security forces have thwarted over 13 terror attacks planned by the Islamic Jihad (slated to originate from the northern West Bank), including suicide bombings and the detonation of car bombs.
The IDF and Israeli security forces will continue to wage an unrelenting war against terrorist organizations that operate in the midst of a civilian population to protect themselves.
