IDF soldiers detained a son of the Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader in Jenin on suspicion of terrorist activity.
The PIG’s current leader, Bassem Saadi, is the son of Yahya Saadi, a terrorist leader who is thought to be involved in the group’s terrorist actions.
In response to his father’s arrest in August, the Islamic Jihad in Gaza launched a barrage of rockets into Israel.
Rockets were also fired at Israel on Saturday night in response to the killing of two Islamic Jihad militants in Jenin.
In another incident during IDF arrest operations in Bethlehem, Palestinians in the Dehaishe refugee camp opened fire on IDF personnel, resulting in one death and six injuries.
According to the IDF, conflicts erupted during the arrest of three PFLP terror organization suspects.
Palestinian health officials reported that an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian man were fighting early on Monday in the southern West Bank, while the military claimed to have detained the son of a top terrorist in Jenin.
According to the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry, Omar Manna, 22, was shot dead, and Israeli troops’ gunfire injured six other people in the Dheisheh refugee camp south of Bethlehem.
Uday Abu Nassar, 24, his brother Moaz Essam Abu Nassar, 27, and Yazan Youssef Hassan Fararja, 24, a wanted terrorist, were all apprehended. Yazan is the brother of a terrorist who was killed.
Conflicts broke out during the arrest of the three terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, according to the Israel Defense Forces.
The IDF stated that “hits were identified” and added that “suspects threw stones, Molotov cocktails, and explosives at the troops during the operation.”
