The IDF says reservists of the Menashe Regional Brigade, Duvdevan unit, LOTAR, and Border Police operated overnight in the West Bank’s Jenin refugee camp, detaining 10 wanted Palestinians and locating two tunnel shafts and three bomb-making labs.

Several firearms, weapons, and other equipment were seized, it says.

The IDF says troops clashed with Palestinian gunmen in the area, returning fire at the armed suspects and those hurling explosive devices.

One soldier was lightly hurt in the clashes, according to the IDF.

The IDF says another 16 suspects were detained in other areas of the West Bank.
