During an IDF operation, which is still taking place in the city of Tul-Karem, a reservist force executed searches, during which a very large explosives-lab was found that included large bombs and explosive devices placed inside suitcases and ready for detonation, phones, gloves and TATP type explosives. The IDF force destroyed the lab.
In addition, during the searches within the town, 26 M-16 rifles and many magazines were found that apparently were used for executing shooting terror attacks against IDF soldiers in the area. These findings were taken for further evaluation.
In this operation, the IDF reservist forces managed to thwart severe terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.
