The IDF has been carrying out a counter-terrorism operation in the West Bank’s Nur Shams refugee camp for more than 40 hours now, the military says.

Amid the raid near Tulkarem, at least 10 gunmen have been killed and eight wanted Palestinians have been detained, according to the IDF.

The IDF says the troops also discovered and destroyed a bomb-making lab, and seized firearms, including assault rifles.

Eight soldiers and a Border Police officer have been wounded so far amid the operation. They are listed in light and moderate conditions.
