Israel Defense Forces chief Herzi Halevi has instructed the army to “increase preparedness and continue counter[terrorism] activities as needed,” the military says, following an assessment he held with top military officials following this morning’s deadly raid in the West Bank city of Jenin.

The IDF also publishes footage from the raid, which it said targeted a Palestinian Islamic Jihad cell planning an imminent attack.
