According to Palestinian media reports, the IDF attacked the terrorist’s Jenin residence early on Wednesday morning.
The terrorist was responsible for a deadly shooting incident in Tel Aviv earlier this year.
Palestinian media sites captured footage of smoke rising from a Jenin building after IDF soldiers allegedly used the “pressure cooker” tactical tactic to fire tiny missiles at the residence.
According to reports, the house belonged to Ra’ad Hazem’s family. Ra’ad Hazem was the terrorist who opened fire on clients of the Ilka bar on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv on April 7; three people were killed.
After being apprehended in Jaffa and pretending to surrender to the security officers who arrived to arrest him, Hazem was subsequently eliminated.
The IDF destroyed Hazem’s residence in the Jenin refugee camp earlier this month.
The IDF declared that another terrorist fired at IDF troops on Wednesday had also been killed in operation, in addition to Hazem’s brother Abed.
There were nine additional casualties, with two of them in severe condition.
Since the assault, Hazem’s father, Fathi, and two of his brothers had all been sought for interrogation.
Following the fatal attack on the busy bar, Fathi Hazem openly hailed his son’s deeds.
According to a local affiliate of the terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad, its men opened fire on soldiers close to the Hazem family home.
According to Israeli media reports, the terrorist killed by the IDF soldiers belonged to Fatah’s security police.
After a period of rising violence in Judea and Samaria that saw multiple assaults on IDF personnel and locals, the IDF carried out its operation.
During a “regular operation” on Tuesday night, Israeli soldiers came under gunfire close to the Palestinian town of Asira ash-Shamaliya.
In recent months, nightly raids targeting terror groups operating in Palestinian cities in Judea and Samaria have also routinely exposed Israeli troops to gunfire.
