The IDF says it has carried out a drone strike against a group of Palestinian gunmen during a raid in the West Bank’s Nur Shams refugee camp.

The large-scale counter-terrorism raid near Tulkarem was launched overnight, and so far troops have questioned dozens of suspects and detained six wanted Palestinians, the IDF says. It says the troops have also seized military equipment.

The drone strike was carried out against a group of Palestinians hurling explosive devices at Israeli troops, the army says. Their conditions are not immediately known.

The IDF says the operation is still continuing at this hour.

In Qalqilya, the military says troops detained another four wanted Palestinians and seized weapons.

Since October 7, troops have arrested more than 2,570 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 1,300 affiliated with Hamas, according to the IDF.
