The IDF says it has measured two homes belonging to a Palestinian terrorist involved in the killing of Meir Tamari near the West Bank settlement of Hermesh in May, ahead of a potential demolition.
Troops operated in the Jenin refugee camp to map the homes of Ahmed Barakat, one of the terrorists behind the deadly shooting.
Israel regularly destroys the homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out deadly terror attacks.
The IDF says that as troops detained two wanted Palestinians in Qalandiya, a violent riot broke out. It says troops responded with riot dispersal means and “hits were identified.” The Palestinian Authority health ministry has said a 25-year-old Palestinian man was killed.
The IDF says that during the overnight operations, engineering vehicles ripped up roads that explosive devices were thought to be planted under.
Two suspects were detained in Jenin, and soldiers returned fire at Palestinian gunmen and others hurling explosives at them, the IDF says.
Troops operated elsewhere in the West Bank overnight, with the IDF saying it shut down two “printing houses that printed inciting materials, including for Hamas” in a village near Jerusalem, seized an assault rifle in the town of Surif near Hebron, and a makeshift submachine gun in the town of Talfit near Jenin.
In all, 21 wanted Palestinian were arrested overnight, the IDF says.
