During proactive operations of IDF and Border Police forces, tonight, a Palestinian police station was evacuated and destroyed in the village of Shvika (Area B), north of Tul Kerem. Also, structures were destroyed in the area of Tul Kerem, from which there were terrorist shootings towards Israeli security forces and which also served the terrorists as a hiding place.

During the razing of the structures shots were opened against the forces, who returned fire towards the sources of the shots and continued its operations. None of our forces were injured.

These operations come in response to many shooting incidents that originate from these places against Israeli civilians and security forces, and are not prevented by Palestinian security forces, and which culminated this past weekend with the injury of an Israeli girl from a shooting.
