IDF soldiers from the Golani Reconnaissance and Duvdivan units are out on patrol Monday morning to apprehend wanted terrorists in the Jenin refugee camp for the first time since the House and Garden operation in July.
The IDF has avoided the camp since the counterterrorism operation, but it was decided to use it as a base of operations in reaction to recent terrorist incidents.
A gunfight between soldiers and militants started as soon as the military entered the camp.
According to PA reports, five people were hurt during the gunfire exchanges, and IDF soldiers also detained five additional people.
An IDF Maoz drone targeted terrorists while the fighting was still going on, hurting all of them, one of whom is in critical condition. IDF soldiers weren’t hurt at all.
According to I24 News, the terrorists detained were “high-caliber, high-level” members of the Al-Ayash organization who had attempted to launch rockets into nearby settlements in the Samaria region.
