Military chief Aviv Kohavi holds a meeting with top officials at the IDF Central Command headquarters, following an uptick in violence in the West Bank.

“Every day and night, our forces arrest wanted persons, operate under fire and thwart terrorist activities,” Kohavi says in remarks provided by the Israel Defense Forces.

“Even this morning we carried out a complex operation in the Jenin refugee camp, which was carried out with determination and professionalism, with the goal of thwarting a concrete threat,” he adds.

The chief of the Central Command, Yehuda Fuchs, and commander of the IDF’s West Bank division Avi Blot, presented Kohavi with an updated assessment of the region during the meeting, the military says.
